Ryan Lochte Swims 400 IM, Suffers Intense Pain, Says He Will Swim it Again (Video Interview)

Produced by Coleman Hodges

MEN’S 400 IM – PRELIMS – 2015 Arena Pro Swim Series

It was a four way race through breaststroke between Tyler Clary, Ryan Lochte, Andrew Seliskar, and Josh Prenot. Clary and Prenot were able to utilize their breaststrokes to pull ahead, making it a two man race with only the freestyle leg to go. It was a great race all the way through, but Josh Prenot had a great backhalf to win with a time of 4:16.08. Prenot beat Clary at the wall, touching him out by .2 seconds. Clary’s second place time was 4:16.28. Ryan Lochte added third place points with his time of 4:18.68.

Andrew Seliskar finished fourth at 4:21.41, a four second drop from his morning swim, and Tristan Cote was fifth at 4:25.71.

If Prenot can hold on to the back half of his races at NCAA’s as well as he is today, we may have a few upsets on our hands this year.

Great time from a great champion. Still going sub 4:20 at 30yrs old, on a couple of weeks of training. Ryan, you are a Man at night and a Man in the morning!


Totally agree with u Billabong ! what a champion


Lochte kept saying “it’s a training meet”, and I interpret that as saying he will not swim 400 IM in THE competitions (trials, worlds, or olympics).

And if I were he or his coach, that’s exactly what I would have done (4IM for training, but not in the big ones)

Varsity Swimmer

He only started training a week ago???

bobo gigi

That’s really possible but on the other hand I can’t remember an interview in which Ryan doesn’t answer that he’s very tired, that he suffers a lot and that everything is promising because he trains seriously only for a few weeks. :mrgreen:
