Nic Fink out-touched Andrew Wilson in the 50 breast final shootout at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin. Fink swam a 27.44 to just hold off Wilson at 27.47. Both swimmers are 24 years old and have yet to make an Olympic team. The breaststroke events on the men’s side have been extremely deep the last few years and it has been one of the most difficult events to make the US team in. Fink made the World Championship team in the 200 this past summer.
Fink picked up points for Lenny Krayzelburg while Wilson picked up points for Kaitlin Sandeno.
