Conor Dwyer dropped two seconds off his time from this morning to win in 1:46.61, tying him with Australia’s David McKeon for 8th in the world this year.  Christian Quintero and Ryan Lochte made it look like a three-man race early, but neither could hang on, touching in 1:48.10 and 1:48.85.  Matias Koski and Clark Smith dueled down the final stretch, with Koski finishing 4th in 1:48.90 and Smith 5th in 1:49.01.  Jack Conger and Long Gutierrez, who will be facing each other again in the 100 fly here in a few minutes finished 6th and 7th in 1:49.48 and 1:49.80.  Veteran distance swimmer Michael McBroom replicated his time from the morning with a 1:49.84.

Like Franklin, Michael Phelps finished well ahead of the rest of the field in the B-final.  His 1:48.21 would have placed him 3rd in the A-final, well ahead of Lochte.
