Texas Longhorn Clark Smith has scratched out of the 1500 free final scheduled for tonight.
1500 free heat sheet
Smith, who posted a 15:17.08 in prelims, qualified seventh into the final. He was well off of his lifetime best, a 15:05.97 from May of this year.
Smith posted a 6th place finish in the men’s 200 free final, which will, in all likeliness, earn him a spot on the American 4×200 free relay for the Rio Olympics. That would be Smith’s only swim in Rio, though if he performs well enough in prelims, he could find himself swimming a leg of the relay in the final.
9th place Logan Houck from the Sandpipers of Nevada, who swam a 15:17.51 in prelims, will move into tonight’s final. Houck was about a second off of his lifetime best (15:16.80 from 2015 Summer Nationals), and he’ll get another chance to improve that tonight.
Top seed Connor Jaeger sits at 14:58.59 from prelims– he’s the American record holder in this event, and the heavy favorite to win the event tonight.
