ARENA PRO SWIM SERIES AT MESA

MEN’S 200 METER BACKSTROKE – FINAL

  • FINA A: 1:58.22
  • S. Olympic Trials: 2:03.79

Top Three:

  1. Ryan Lochte, SwimMAC Carolina, 2:01.04
  2. Omar Pinzon, Trojan Swim Club, 2:01.65
  3. Connor Green, Unattached, 2:02.03

After dropping the 200 IM final, Ryan Lochte swam 0.27 seconds faster than his prelim time from this morning to win the 200 back in 2:01.04.  While Lochte isn’t known for being fast in-season, it is a bit rough watching the former world record holder not being able to crack 2:00.  The next three swimmers finished in order of their post-scratches placings from this morning.  Omar Pinzon stayed close to Lochte the whole way, touching just behind in 2:01.65.  Connor Green took 3rd in 2:02.03, followed by Bryce Mefford in 2:03.20.

Johannes Colloni knocked a little over a second off his time from this morning to take 5th in 2:03.73, moving up from 7th over the final 50.  Nolan Tesone (2:04.10), Preston Jenkins (2:05.45), and Drew Cosagarea (2:05.61).
