  |   Sports

Sprinters seized the spotlight at the USA Swimming national championships with year's best times in Indianapolis on Thursday.

Lilly King won the 50 meters breaststroke in a 2017-best and U.S. record time of 29.66 seconds, while Justin Ress swam the year's fastest men's 50m backstroke, winning in 24.41 to represent the U.S. at next month's Budapest world championships.

"It's crazy, I've actually always wanted to be a sprinter, but I swam distance in high school, distance my first year in college," said Ress.

Caeleb Dressel also won his second title of the meet by taking the men's 100m butterfly in another year's best time of 50.87 after claiming Wednesday's 50m butterfly.

Two of the longer races were also held, with Leah Smith winning the women's 400m Individual Medley in 4:33.86, while Chase Kalisz won the men's 400m IM in a year's best 4:06.99.
