MEN’S 1500 FREE TIMED FINAL
- PSS Record: 14:53.12, Jordan Wilimovsky (USA), 2016
However, in what came down to a mad dash on the final 50, it was Grothe getting his hand on the wall first in 15:20.96, edging out Clark (15:21.30) by just over three tenths. Final 50 splits? Grothe – 28.16, Clark – 28.26.
Grothe adds over 10 seconds to his season-best of 15:10.29, set at the first PSS of the year in San Antonio (January), while Clark smashes his old PB of 15:33.51 set at the 2019 Junior Nationals.
Vargas fell off the pace ever so slightly towards the end of the race, touching third in 15:23.13. That marks his fastest swim since August of 2019.
