MEN’S 200 Freestyle – Reported by SwimSwam – 2014 Arena Grand Prix

In a Michael Phelps-less field, Conor Dwyer seized the opportunity to lead from lane 4, and man did he make a statement. The race belonged to Dwyer right from the start and he never backed down, swimming to the win with a time of 1:47.86. His teammate Matt McLean was a second behind with a strong 1:48.73, good for second place. Anders Lie Nielsen was the last man under 1:50, grabbing third with a 1:49.88. Tyler Clary, whose main event is later tonight in the IM, swam to a fourth place finish with a time of 1:50.44 while distance specialist Connor Jaeger swam to fifth with a 1:50.92. Three members of Club Wolverine rounded out the A final: Dylan Bosch (1:51.23), Michael Wynalda (1:51.51), and Michael Klueh (1:51.63).
