CHARLOTTE, North Carolina, May 17. NCAP’s Andrew Seliskar served notice that he’s going to make some noise heading into 2016 with a victory in the men’s 200-meter fly at the Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte.

Seliskar powered his way to a 1:57.40 for the win. That swim is just outside the top 20 in the world as the U.S. has an open door in the event considering no American is in the top 20 yet. Dylan Bosch hit the wall second in 1:58.34 with Tom Luchsinger checking in with a third-place 1:58.77.

Chase Kalisz, the 400 IM winner last night, placed fourth in 1:59.27, while Ben Colley earned fifth in 2:00.10. Steve Schmuhl (2:00.74), Mick Litherland (2:02.52) and Joseph Schooling (2:03.06) also competed in the championship finale.

Thiago Pereira checked in with a 1:59.73 to claim the consolation heat. Omar Pinzon (2:01.63) and Pete Brumm (2:02.29) finished second and third behind him.

Sebastien Rousseau (2:02.41), Nico Van Duijn (2:02.82), Ben Southern (2:03.07), Yeziel Morales (2:03.67) and Kevin Litherland (2:04.52) finished fourth through eighth in the consolation.
