MEN’S 400 IM
A former college standout at the University of Florida, Sebastien Rousseau kept his Florida magic alive, going 4:19.71 to win the 400 IM.
It was Rousseau’s back half that outpaced runner-up and prelims leader Tyler Clary. Clary made a run on backstroke, but Rousseaus 1:14 breaststroke split and 59.8 on freestyle easily shut the door, and the South African went 4:19.71 to win by three seconds.
Clary was 4:22.90, and Conor Dwyer, coming off of the 200 free earlier in the meet, was 4:23.22 for third. That means Dwyer will maintain his points lead over Clary, losing only a single point compared to Clary on day 1.
Island Swimming’s Alec Page was 4:23.83, just behind Dwyer. Then came a bit of a gap before Michael Weiss. The former Wisconsin Badger was 4:26.38, finishing mostly alone – the biggest gap of the final came after him, with Marko Blazevski‘s 4:31.82 being the next finisher.
Also in the A final were Mexico’s Julio Olvera Alejos (4:35.48) and Canada’s Christian Ng (4:36.00).
