Canadian Nationals Results: Ryan Cochrane Puts Up Strong 400 Free

VICTORIA, British Columbia, April 4. RYAN Cochrane’s victory in the final of the 400 free was never in doubt at the Canadian long course nationals, but who would join him as a possible companion on the international roster?

Cochrane put up a strong in-season swim to post a 3:47.30 to put him fourth in the world behind two Australians (David McKeon and Mack Horton) and Korean Tae-Hwan Park. Jeremy Bagshaw made a run to get automatic qualifying for the Commonwealth Games and Pan Pacific Games, but fell short of the 3:50.87 standard with a 3:51.09 that tied his personal best.

Peter Brothers took third with a 3:54.57. Notably, the strength of Randy Bennett’s distance freestyle program was on display, with the top five finishers in the final representing Island Swimming.
