Ryan Murphy wins backstroke in Orlando

Posted: Mar. 4th, 2013  |  By Michael Pearse

Ryan Murphy seem to always swim better when he is going up against Ryan Lochte. He proved that theory correct when he won the 2013 Orlando Gran Prix 100m backstroke. His final time was an impressive 54.92 seconds. Lochte took third place with a time of 55.42 seconds.

Ryan Murphy always swims very well when racing against fellow Floridian Ryan Lochte. That held true again in this meet, where he was a 54.92.

He and Australian Bobby Hurley were nearly dead-even throughout this race, and it’s impressive with how often Hurley has been racing that Murphy still managed to get his fingertips to the wall first.

Lochte, meanwhile, took 3rd in 55.42, followed by another redshirted West Virginian Bryce Bohman in 55.58. That time, combined with his prelims swim, knocked a full second off of his best time from last year’s Olympic Trials.
