MEN’S 400 IM – Reported by Jared Anderson
Hungary swept the 400 IMs as 25-year-old David Verraszto hacked another 4 seconds off his prelims swim to not only win, but move from 10th to 3rd overall in the world this year. His 4:16.03 crushed the field and sits behind only a pair of Japanese swimmers (Kosuke Hagino and Daiya Seto) in the 2014 world rankings.
Tyler Clary out of Club Wolverine came in second. His 4:20.70 was right about where Verraszto was this morning, and should rank him within the top 15 in the world as well. He leapfrogged Wisconsin’s Michael Weiss at finals, with Weiss finishing third in 4:23.67.
The rest of the field was all relative youngsters. Ian Rainey, 18, of Wilton YMCA, took fourth, 19-year-old Hungarian David Foldhazi fifth, 19-year-old William Brothers of Island Swim Club sixth, 18-year-old Mexican Andres Olvera Alejos seventh and 17-year-old Boleck De Pawlikowski eighth.
The B final went to Wilton Y’s Stephen Holmquist, himself just 17, in 4:31.42.
