Swag! Nathan Adrian Upsets Aussie James “The Missile” Magnussen by 1/100 Sec in 100m Free
Team USA swimmer Nathan Adrian may have come through with one of the most surprising upsets during the men’s 100m free, defeating Aussie James “The Missile” Magnussen with a time of 47.52.
Nathan was in 3rd place after the 50m turn, but proceeded to chase down Magnussen to eliminate the margin, just barely hitting the the wall before the Aussie in a photo finish.
Naturally Adrian was beyond ecstatic to win his first individual gold medal, and Magnussen was beyond salty to trick off a race that most that he had locked up like Doug Christie is by his main boo.
