CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 16. THE men's 200-meter free proved to be a bit watered-down with some top swimmers missing out on the finale, but NBAC's Conor Dwyer still managed to remain motivated with a winning effort in the event tonight at the Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte.

Dwyer raced his way to a win in 1:47.86, which is well outside the top 20 in the world rankings. Dwyer's teammate Matt McLean touched second in 1:48.73, while Club Wolverine's Anders Nielsen finished third overall in 1:49.88.


This event lost some star power as Yannick Agnel drew a disqualification with a false start in prelims, and he's the third-ranked swimmer in the world with a 1:45.63. Micheal Phelps also made A finals with a 1:51.69, but scratched swimming the race tonight.

Tyler Clary claimed fourth overall tonight in 1:50.44 with Club Wolverine's Connor Jaeger taking fifth in 1:50.92. Jaeger led a host of Wolverines the rest of the finale finishes as Dylan Bosch (1:51.23), Micheal Wynalda (1:51.51) and Michael Klueh (1:51.63) placed sixth through eighth in the championship heat.

Thiago Pereira of Brazil claimed the top time in the B final with a 1:50.37 against SEAL's Charlie Houchin, who placed second in 1:50.79. Lewis Coleman of Great Britain touched third in 1:51.11.

Pete Brumm (1:52.39), Mitch D'Arrigo (1:52.48), Stefan Milosevic (1:52.59), NBAC's Doga Celik (1:52.96) and Matias Koski (1:53.41) also competed in the consolation heat.
