righi romps in 100 free prelims; lowers mark to 42.18

Yale’s Alex Righi is fast.

[Just how fast is he?]

Righi is so fast that…

[Oh, yeah, that punchline doesn’t work with the extra consonant… anyway…]

He’s fast. Trust me, he’s fast. To the tune that he just lowered the 5th-fastest time in the nation in the 100y Freestyle — in prelims!

Righi dropped the meet, League and pool records down to 42.18 after knifing through the DeNunzio waters — setting up what could be an epic display in the nightcap.

The Eli already had the No. 5 time in the nation — according to CollegeSwimming.com — with a 42.31. The top-4 times are all under the 42 second mark but Righi rises to the occasion when medals are on the line.

Don’t be surprised if the senior makes a run not only at a sub-:42 time, but also moves up a rung or two in the fastest times this year.
