IRVINE, California, August 11.
The Woodlands’ Michael McBroom polished off another distance freestyle victory with a sizzling time of 7:49.66 in the finale. That swim cleared his already third-ranked season best of 7:49.96 from the Santa Clara stop of the Arena Grand Prix, but wasn’t enough to beat either of the top two swimmers Gabriele Detti (7:42.74) or Gregorio Paltrinieri (7:43.01). McBroom, however, is in a strong position heading to both Pan Pacs and the 2015 World rosters.
NBAC’s Matt McLean powered his way to second in the event with a 7:55.78 to take 16th in the world, while Club Wolverine’s Michael Klueh earned third in 7:58.13.
Arthur Frayler placed fourth in 8:01.38, while Mission Viejo’s Janardan Burns took fifth in 8:01.43. Badger’s Ryan Feeley earned sixth in 8:01.96.
Crimson’s Liam Egan, from the earlier heats, took seventh in 8:02.98, while another early-heat swimmer Jacob Ores of Loveland placed eighth in 8:03.22.
