For the third time tonight a championship final featured a 1-2 finish, this time it was for two American swimmers: Sean Lehane and Carter Griffin.
Lehane grabbed the first gold for the American men after coming back strong on the last 50. Colombia’s Omar Pinzon was in the lead up until the 150m wall. Lehane came off that wall fast, passed, Pinzon, and started inching out to half body-length lead.
Pinzon faded big time allowing both Griffin and Brazilian swimmer Leonardo De Deus to pass him. Griffin took the silver in 1:58.18, punching in the 1-2 finish for the Americans, and De Deus won bronze in 1:58.27
Behind them was Pinzon who ended up fourth with a 1:58.77 well behind Lehane.
Lehane was just a few tenths of a second off the meet record of 1:57.11 that he set in prelims.
