Clark is coming off a strong performance at the US Olympic Trials, where he finished 6th in the 200 fly. He continues to train at the University of Georgia.
The Bulldog qualified 3rd overall behind Russia’s Aleksandr Kharlanov (1:51.03) and defending World Champ Chad Le Clos (1:51.23). His teammate Shields barely made it into finals, finishing 8th overall in 1:53.09. There are no semi-finals for 200m events at the Short Course World Championships, so the final for this event will go off tonight.
