Connor Jaeger Needs More Taper to Feel Right, Video Interview

Men’s 1500 freestyle at the 2013 World Championship Trials as reported by swimswam:

The men’s 1500 freestyle was a tale of two halves. The first 750 meters was a great head to head battle between Connor Jaeger and Michael McBroom, with only 73 one-hundreths of a second separating the two swimmers at the half way point.

It was a very different story in the second half where Jaeger pulled away from McBroom and developed a lead of almost four seconds by the 1000 meter mark.

Jaeger continued to extend that lead eventually winning the event in a time of 14:53.34, which currently ranks third in the world. McBroom finished second in a time of 14:59.12, which is his first time under the 15 minute barrier. Sean Ryan finished third in a time of 15:04.60.
