This morning both swimmers were tied for 16th place after putting up times of 4:20.45 respectively. In their swim off, Forde managed to get his hand on the wall first to guarantee his spot in the ‘B’ final.
Forde clocked in at 4:22.10 at the touch to better McHugh’s time of 4:22.53. Both were neck-and-neck for the majority of the race, but Forde managed to edge out his competitor towards the end.
