Swimming World Performance Of The Week Flashback To Ryan Hoffers 100 Freestyle

With little competition this past week, this week’s Performance of the Week goes back a couple weeks to look at a swim that may have gone unnoticed during a busy week. While Katie Ledecky was busy shattering the American record in the 1,000 freestyle, down in Texas Ryan Hoffer was having a tremendous meet at U.S. Winter Juniors – West that included a 17-18 NAG record in the 100 freestyle.

Touching in 41.23, Hoffer smashed Caleb Dressel’s venerable NAG record of 41.90 that was set only a year ago at the 2015 SEC Championships while also setting the pool record at UT’s storied Lee & Joe Jamail Swim Center. That swim placed the Scottsdale Aquatic swimmer as the second fastest American performer of all-time, with only Nathan Adrian having swum faster. Adrian’s American Record in the 100-yard freestyle stands at 41.08 from 2009.

That leaves Hoffer only .15 away from Adrian’s American Record, and at only 17 he has over a year to continue to drop and potentially break through the 41-second barrier. Only a year ago, no one under the age of 18 had broken 42 seconds in the 100 freestyle, and now this 17 year old is knocking on the door of the American Record with plenty of time left in his swimming career. In addition to his incredible swim on the third day of the meet, Hoffer also won the 50 free (19.06), 100 back (45.58), and 100 butterfly (45.46). See Hoffer’s swim in it’s entirety here.

Congratulations Ryan Hoffer on earning the Swimming World Performance of the Week!
