Ben Littlejohn (1:35.32), Marcus Holmquist (1:34.72), and Mahlon Reihman (1:34.35) handed off to Farris, who blasted a 1:31.80 anchor to pass Princeton and earn the gold for the Crimson. Although they did not break their own Ivy League record, Harvard took down the pool record and now owns the top-five times in the 800 free relay for the Ivy League.

Princeton came in second place with 6:17.88. Leadoff Nicholas Lim (1:34.93) was just .2 behind Yale on the first leg. Raunak Khosla went 1:32.67 to pull the Tigers in front.

Some of these guys don’t know how to swim the 200, one went out in 20.5 and came home in 26

Idk man, I’d say that’s one of the nicest looking 200s I’ve ever seen. He has a bright future in the event

Thank you, SwimSwam, for your coverage. Where are you finding the names of the swimmers? I see splits but no names when I click on the results. I’m trying to determine if the two fastest freestyle splits were by the Marcoux brothers.

We would’ve also accepted Bruce Willis, John McClain or Hans Gruber.

He went out very hard, but not sure if the wheels fell off or he shut it down. We know he’s capable of that front end speed in a 200

23.7 on the 3rd 50 for 1:06.5 at the 150
25.3 on the last 50 to land at 1:31.8

Do pray tell why he would shut it down on a relay, when it’s his last race of the night, and there are records at stake?
