2017 U.S. Open: Day 2 Scratch Report

2017 U.S. OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS

There were no scratches from A finalists on Day Two of the U.S. Open in East Meadow, Long Island, and only one B finalist in 6 events decline to swim in the final. Gunnar Bentz of Athens Bulldog Swim Club, who posted the 15th-fastest time overall in the heats of men’s 400 free with 3:55.89, will not swim in the consolation tonight. Instead, France’s Joris Bouchaut will move into lane 9 of the B final. Bouchaut was 6 seconds off his seed time in heats this morning, going 3:56.63 for the 17th time overall. His best is 3:50.65. Bouchaut’s teammate Damien Joly finished fourth with 3:53.50, 3.1 seconds off his seed time. Both men were in the championship heat of the 1500 last night. Joly won the event with a new meet record of 14:55.46, while Bouchaut finished third in the heat and fourth overall in 15:18.72.

The rest of the top-16 finishers are expected to be in their assigned lanes in tonight’s final.
