Chase Kalisz of the Athens Bulldogs extended his unbeaten medley streak in tonight’s 400, leading the entire way to clock a time of 4:11.62. Kalisz is currently the #1 ranked swimmer in the world in this event with his time from the Atlanta stop of 4:08.92.

His training partner Jay Litherland touched 2nd in 4:17.27, but ended up being DQed for a butterfly kick during the breast leg, per the live results. That bumped Takeharu Fujimori of the Phoenix Swim Club up to 2nd, and Mark Szaranek of the Gator Swim Club into 3rd. Both swimmers are fairly high in the world rankings, with Szaranek 7th and Fujimori 13th.

Sean Grieshop (4:22.65) out-touched Charlie Swanson (4:22.87) in the race for 4th.
