INDIANAPOLIS, Indiana, April 1. IN the absence of American record-holder Klete Keller, super-swimmer Michael Phelps assumed the role of favorite in the men’s 400-meter free, though Peter Vanderkaay, the NCAA champion at 500 yards and Phelps’ Club Wolverine teammate, figured to be a worthy challenger.

Unlike the women’s 100-meter fly that had just finished and was still keeping the crowd buzzing, the men’s race unfolded to script.

Phelps jumped out to a huge lead of nearly three seconds over Vanderkaay in the first 100 meters, 52.93 to 55.66, with the rest of the field strung out another second or more in arrears.

At 200 meters, the Baltimore Bullet had stretched his margin over Vanderkaay to three-and-a half seconds, 1:50.37 to 1:53.82. Justin Mortimer maintained contact at 1:54.56.

In the second half of the race, Vanderkaay gradually cut into Phelps’ lead, reducing it to 2.58 seconds at 300 meters and only 1.59 seconds at the wall. But the outcome was never in doubt. Phelps swam a respectable 3:47>79, never threatening Keller’s American record of 3:44.11, while Vanderkaay got the second ticket to Montreal with his 3:49.38. Mortimer was third in 3:50.98.
