Grant House Putting Pieces Together at ASU (Video)

Reported by James Sutherland.

MEN’S 200 IM FINAL

  • PSS Record: 1:56.32, Michael Phelps (USA), 2012
  1. Chase Kalisz, Athens Bulldogs, 1:58.21
  2. Takeharu Fujimori, Phoenix Swim Club, 2:00.22
  3. Carson Foster, Mason Manta Rays, 2:00.72

The 24-year-old Kalisz picks up his fourth win of the meet and second of the night, thoroughly dominating the men’s 200 IM field with back half splits of 33.57 and 28.91 to be the only one under 2:00 in 1:58.21. That caps an amazing Pro Swim Series performance for him this season, as he went undefeated in both IM events.

Takeharu Fujimori ran down Carson Foster on the breast leg (34.25) after Foster was a full second up at the 100, and managed to hold off the 16-year-old for 2nd in 2:00.22 to Foster’s 2:00.72. That’s a new personal best for Foster, lowering his 2:01.46 from Austin, and maintains his spot at 8th among Americans this year.

Grant House produced yet another PB here for 4th in 2:02.02, and Carson’s older brother Jake was 5th in 2:03.61.

This sounds very similar to an interview with Cameron Craig last year! BTW, where is Cameron this summer? Where are the rest of all those ASU they have recruited the last couple years? Nice swims Grant! Keep it going!

Forget about the others and the politics, they aren’t responsible for his success. Good on Grant for swimming fast and bettering his times
