Connor Dwyer, representing Trojan Swim Club, swam a solid race to earn the national title in the men’s 400 freestyle. He was about a half a body length ahead of Ryan Cochrane and Michael McBroom at the halfway mark, and came to the wall with more than a two-second cushion at the end. Dwyer touched at 3:48.11, 2.3 seconds faster than he had been in the morning. Island Swimming’s Cochrane held onto the second position and finished with 3:50.15. The Woodlands Swim Club’s McBroom was third in 3:50.50.

Matias Koski, who represents Finland internationally but is swimming with Dynamo here, dominated the B final. He lowered his own Finnish national record of 3:50.70 by 1.33 seconds, clocking a 3:49.37 to win the consolation.
