# Chase Kalisz Clinches Men’s Pro Swim Series Title With 200 IM Win

July 29th, 2018

### 2018 U.S. NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS

Katie Ledecky had her 2nd-straight Pro Swim Series title clinched by the time she went to bed on Saturday, but the men’s title was still up in the air with just a 5-point margin separating Chase Kalisz and Zane Grothe, with each having one event, where they were favorites, left to swim.

While Grothe did all that he could do, winning the 800 free in a new U.S. Open Record, it came one event too late: Kalisz had already won the 200 IM 15 minutes earlier, giving him 120 points and an insurmountable 15-point lead.

Kalisz is also a repeat winner of the title, like Ledecky.
