Full results

Grabich’s time didn’t challenge his national record of 48.11, but did win the race by four tenths over 20-year-old Guido Buscaglia, who was 50.33.

After an Argentine record from Virginia Bardach on day 1, no national records fell on days 3 and 4, though there were some close shaves:

  • In the men’s 1500 free, Martin Miguel Carrizo Yunges went 15:11.59, coming within 1.4 seconds of the national record set in 2013 by Martin Naidich. Yunges won the race by a dominating 53 seconds.
  • A couple of nice swims came out of the women’s 200 breast. Julia Sebastian went 2:29.10, about two seconds off her national record, but good enough to hold off a touch fight from Macarena Ceballos. Ceballos was 2:29.60 for second place.
  • In the men’s 100 fly, Marcos Barale was the winner, going 53.85.
