Adrian wins 100 free at US Nationals; Phelps 7th

IRVINE, Calif. — Nathan Adrian led all the way to win the 100-meter freestyle at the U.S. national championships, with Michael Phelps finishing next-to-last in a star-studded field.

Adrian touched in 48.31 seconds on Wednesday night. Ryan Lochte was second in 48.96 swimming in the far outside lane. Jimmy Feigen finished third in 48.98.

Phelps was last at the turn and straggled home in 49.17, beating only Seth Stubblefield.

Conor Dwyer took fourth, joining the top three on the U.S. team for the Pan Pacific championships later this month in Australia.

Phelps is facing his toughest competition yet since launching a comeback in April. The most decorated Olympian in history has three other events in which to qualify for Pan Pacs.

The men's 100 featured seven Olympians, including five who own individual gold medals.
