2017 U.S. Open: Raab and Gutierrez Scratch Day 3 Finals

2017 U.S. OPEN CHAMPIONSHIPS

In the women’s 400 IM, #11 qualifier Meaghan Raab of Nashville Aquatic Club (4:51.43) pulled out of the consolation final, allowing Bailey Bonnett of Kentucky Aquatics, whose 4:53.76 in morning heats was .99 better than her seed time, to move up from the C final. Raab added 4.8 seconds in the 400 IM and 0.8 second in the 100 fly this morning, and will contest neither event in finals.

Long Gutierrez of California Aquatics (53.99) scratched the consols of the men’s 100 fly after finishing 13th in heats. Mateo Gonzalez of Texas A&M thus moves into tonight’s B final; his 54.23 in prelims put him 17th overall for the morning.

All top 16 qualifiers in the men’s 400 IM and the women’ 100 fly are expected to swim in their lanes tonight.
