MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Missy Franklin won the 50-yard freestyle and the 100 backstroke, and fellow Olympian Ryan Lochte took the men's 100 back at the Minneapolis Grand Prix on Saturday night.It was Franklin's third victory in the season's first Grand Prix meet, having won the 200 freestyle with a national age-group record time Friday. In the 50 free, she touched in 22.15 seconds. Erin Caflisch was second at 22.75.Franklin returned to the University of Minnesota pool to win her signature event, the 100 back in 50.97, nearly 3 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Mickayla Hinkle, who was timed in 53.55.Lochte took the 100 back in 46.21, ahead of national team member David Plummer, who was second at 47.24. Lochte won the 200 free and 100 fly.In the men's 50 free, Olympian Jimmy Feigen won in 19.73. Garrett Weber-Gale, a 2008 Olympian, was second at 20.11. Lochte also swam in the final, choosing to swim butterfly and finished last in 21.48."The reason why I swam fly for the 50 free is because I am never going to swim a 50 free in my life," he said. "There was really no point in me swimming it so I wanted to try a 50 fly since I'll swim the 200-yard medley."National team member Bobby Bollier won the 200 fly in 1 minute, 44.46 seconds. Becca Mann won the women's race in 1:57.14, with Dagny Knutson second in 1:58.24.Mike Alexandrov won the 200 breaststroke in 1:55.38, while Kierra Smith won the women's race in 2:08.11.
