Mellouli came in with the top time of the psych sheet, a 15:07.78. With Mellouli out of the race, Louisville’s Marcelo Acosta, Taylor Abbott, Aaron Appel, Chris Yeager of Nitro, Marc Hinawi, Aidan Burns, Eric Knowles, and Wiktor Jaszcak will make up the top heat of the men’s 1500 tonight.
Anderson was seeded fourth with 8:29.32, and Evans was fifth with 8:32.19. The top heat of the women’s 800 tonight will be Stanford’s Katie Ledecky, Virginia’s Leah Smith, Vien Nguyen of Vietnam, Michigan commit Sierra Schmidt, Shae Nicolaisen, Taylor Ault, McKenzee Gordon, and Hayley McIntosh.
Anderson made the final of the 200 fly this morning, but she scratched, so she is out for all of tonight’s session.
