MESA, Arizona, April 25. RYAN Lochte’s unworldly underwaters proved to be the difference in the men’s 200-meter freestyle at the Arena Grand Prix in Mesa.

Lochte, swimming for SwimMAC, edged NYAC’s Darian Townsend, 1:49.48 to 1:49.94, in what proved to be an epic battle here in Mesa. Lochte, however, gained an advantage with every turn.

The Woodlands’ Michael McBroom, who won the 400 free last night, took third in 1:50.42 this evening in the shorter distance event.

NBAC’s Tom Luchsinger (1:51.88), Louisville’s Matthias Lindenbauer (1:52.220), PASA’s Jason Dunford (1:52.42), SCSC’s John Foster (1:54.37) and Stanford’s Bobby Bollier (1:55.41) completed the championship heat.
