GOLD COAST, Australia, August 21.

In what can only be described as a 15-round heavyweight championship bout, USA’s Connor Jaeger took the title off the defending champ as he edged Canada’s Ryan Cochrane in one of the most exciting 1500 frees of all time. Cochrane went out hard before Jaeger caught up around the 500-meter mark, then the two traded shots every 50 before Jaeger had just enough of a lead going into the final 50 to withstand a 27.29 split by the defending champion.  Jaeger finished with a 14:51.79 for the win, while Cochrane settled for silver with a 14:51.97.

Australia’s Mack Horton, a youngster at just 18, took bronze in 14:52.78, while teammate Jordan Harrison took fourth in 14:53.65.

USA’s Michael McBroom (14:57.15), Japan’s Kohei Yamamoto (14:57.71), USA’s Jordan Wilimovsky (15:01.43) and USA’s Sean Ryan (15:03.82) picked up spots in the top eight in the timed final event.
