GOLD COAST, Australia, August 24.

Canada’s Ryan Cochrane defended his 2010 title with a 7:45.39 tonight.  That swim nearly challenged Grant Hackett’s sizzling 7:44.78 meet record from the 2002 edition, and moved Cochrane firmly into third in the world this year.  Only Italy’s dynamic duo of Gabriele Detti (7:42.74) and Gregorio Paltrinieri (7:43.01) have been faster this year.

Australia’s Mack Horton turned in a silver-winning time of 7:47.73 as he moved to fourth in the world, while USA’s Connor Jaeger raced to bronze in 7:47.75 for fifth in the world.  Australia’s Jordan Harrison took fourth, just off the podium, with a 7:48.20 for sixth in the rankings as Pal Joensen of the Faroe Islands dropped from third to seventh with his 7:48.49 from the European Championships.

Notably, this morning’s tough luck swimmer Shogo Takeda of Japan, who swam all by himself in the first heat of the timed final event, moved up two spots to seventh overall with his 8:01.53. Not only did Takeda have to swim by himself this morning, a technical glitch in the timing system forced officials to stop him after he’d already swum 125 meters to reschedule him until the end of prelims.  That’s a gutsy performance for the Japanese swimmer.
