Tyler Clary says he has never been sharper and he is right: he crushed the entire race, more importantly, his second freestyle leg was so on point and won the A final with a 4:09.51. Chase Kalisz really posed a threat on the breaststroke leg but finished second with a time of 4:11.52.
Gunnar Bentz really pulled through with only 150 m left in his race and backed half the B final with a time of 4:15.24. Corey Okubo had a great front half and finished second with a time of 4:18.43.
Sam McHugh took the C final with a 4:21.90. McHugh and Robert Owen were dead tied at the halfway point going into breaststroke with 2:05.55 as Owen ended up third with a time of 4:25.30.
