Ryan Murphy, Jordan Wilimovsky, Rowdy Gaines and Josh Davis teamed up for stop No. He finished off his pan pacs performance with a gold in the men’s 4×100 medley relay, leading off for USA in a time of 52.70. To end the meet Murphy anchored the 400 free relay with a 41.17 second split to help Cal finish 3rd. Growing up, Murphy attended Bolles School where he swam as a Shark under head coach Sergio Lopez.

His split of 20.64 was the fastest backstroke split of the meet, and helped Cal touch in first for its first relay gold of the meet. In 2012, Murphy also qualified to compete for a spot on the US Olympic Team at the 2012 US Olympic Trials. There, Ryan not only became an Olympian, but he crushed his Olympic goals by winning three gold medals in the 100 meter backstroke, the 200-meter backstroke and the 4×100 meter medley relay, setting a new world record for the 100-meter backstroke. So geht es weiter – Programm. This episode spotlights Nathan Adrian’s battle with testicular cancer and how returning to swimming after his surgeries has been his “home.” Cody Miller, Ryan Murphy and Ryan Lochte also make appearances to talk about their love for the sport, their favorite Olympic moment and how they plan to proceed now that the Olympic Trials and Olympics have been postponed a year. As a member of the National Team, Murphy competed at the 2012 FINA SCM World Championships in Istanbul, Turkey.

Again that was good enough for a pool record but short of his own NCAA, U.S. and American record set a year earlier. He had control of the race by the first 50 yards, but it was his back-half that blew away the heat to take gold, just .04 seconds away from re-breaking his records. Ryan keeps a healthy perspective outside the pool. Ryan emerged from follower to leader quickly; speeding past his siblings and countess competitors. But over the final few meters, Murphy pulled away to take the gold in 51.97 ahead of China’s Jiayu Xu.

At the trials, Murphy just missed the Olympic Team finishing fourth in the 200-meter backstroke (1:57.39) and sixth in the 100-meter backstroke (53.92).

He pulled off the backstroke double when he won the 200 in 1:53.62 ahead of the 2015 World Champion, Mitch Larkin of Australia.

He held on to take the gold three tenths faster than Larkin. Where Murphy shocked was in the preliminary heat of the 4×100-meter mixed relay, where he led off in the backstroke leg. Ryan Murphy talked to Swim Swam about his collaboration with the Jay Fund. Lenny Krayzelburg, who swept gold medals in the 100 and 200 back at the 2000 Olympics, has led the Los Angeles Current of the International Swimming League as general manager, and he has added two new American backstroke stars to his team. Mel's best event was the 200 butterfly. On Day 6 in the 200 back final, Murphy won his first individual medal of the meet, giving chase to Evgeny Rylov and touching for silver in a time of 1:54.12. Although he added about a second, Murphy helped the men win a gold medal. Olympic Champion Ryan Murphy was on track for a great summer before COVID-19 postponed the Olympics. 100-200 back? The 200 meter backstroke was owned by Murphy too.

He’s definitely due for a big time drop in the 200 though. He also won gold in the 100 backstroke (52.51) and 200 backstroke (1:54.15) at the Phillips 66 National Championships, putting him on the 2018 Pan Pac team.

In the 200 yard backstroke, Murphy sat behind Texas’ John Shebat for the first 150 yards, but a final split of 24.74 (almost 1 second quicker than Shebat) saw Murphy overtake Shebat to stay undefeated in the backstroke events for his college campaign. In the 100 yard backstroke he was unsurprisingly ahead from start to finish, touching for gold in 43.99. Thirteen years later, at the 2016 summer Olympics in Rio, his lifelong dream came true.
