1. Chad le Clos – ENS – 1:51.97
2. Vini Lanza – LON – 1:52.90
3. James Guy – LON – 1:53.48
4. Gunnar Bentz – IRO – 1:53.77
5. Kregor Zirk – ENS – 1:54.45
6. Laszlo Cseh – AQC – 1:54.82
7. Matteo Rivolta – AQC – 1:56.81

Yes, le Clos is also undefeated in this event, but no it was not enough to bring Energy closer towards the Roar’s lead heading into the skins. Although a 6-7 finish from the Centurions, they remain ahead of the Iron despite Bentz’s 4th-place finish.
