MEN’S 400 IM – Reported by SwimSwam – 2014 Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte

It’s been said that those who can swim breaststroke decently can be exceptional at the individual medley, Chase Kalisz proved that point today. While the race seemed close through the fly, Clary took the lead at the halfway point. Kalisz’s breaststroke was unbeatable though and that’s where he made his move. Having one of the most impressive back halves in IM history, Kalisz secured the win in a time of 4:16.38. Tyler Clary wasn’t able to make up any ground and finished second in 4:19.57. Andrew Seliskar was right behind the Olympian, grabbing third with a 4:19.72. Jay Litherland, who is one of the Dynamo triplets, was fourth in a 4:21.61 while Ty Stewart was fifth with a time of 4:24.91. Jay’s brother, Kevin Litherland finished sixth in a 4:26.97. Connor Jaeger (4:30.04) and Connor Green (4:30.75) rounded out the heat for seventh and sixth place.

This guy looks smart, nice and funny.
He’s in very good hands at Georgia and NBAC.
He has improved so much his backstroke since last year. It’s impressive.
He still has 2 full years before Rio to continue to improve his front-half and his underwaters.
He will be ready for the gold.
I predict 4.07.12 for next summer and 4.05.23 for 2016.
