Jordan Wilimovsky came home from Russia to win the men’s 1500 freestyle, and he did just that, posting a time of 14:57.05. That is the 9th fastest time in the world this year. Wilimovsky recently won the 10k at the 2015 FINA World Championships, earning the first spot on the 2016 US Olympic team.
True Sweetser and PJ Ransford finished second and third at 15:10.73 and 15:14.04, respectively.
Fourth place went to Logan Houck at 15:16.80 and Christopher Yeager finished fifth at 15:17.99.
An interesting side note, had Katie Ledecky been in that final, she would have finished sixth with her time of 15:25.39 from the World Championships last week.
