After taking down the old Phelps record in prelims, Foster lowered the mark again to 4:14.73 in finals. His older brother Jake finished 2nd in 4:15.78.
In spite of the time being a small drop for Carson Foster, his splitting was quite different. Whereas in the morning, he relied on his front-half, in the afternoon, he turned halfway about a second behind the pace.
Then a monster breaststroke leg drew him close to the metaphorical record line, and a better-than-average freestyle leg pulled him past it.
|Carson Foster||Saturday AM||57.02||1:03.52||1:14.08||1:00.30||4:14.92|
|Carson Foster||Saturday PM||57.58||1:03.99||1:13.13||1:00.03||4:14.73|
We were unable to locate Phelps’ splits from the 2001 US Spring National Championships anywhere. If you have them, please send to [email protected], and we’ll update the table above.
Sean Grieshop’s Meet Record and World Junior Record of 4:14.00 from the 2016 US Olympic Trials still stands, while the Meet Record remains a 4:12.59 done by Chase Kalisz in 2012.
Later in the session, Foster anchored the American 800 free relay in 1:49.68.
Both Foster brothers train with the Mason Manta Rays in Ohio.
