IRVINE, California, August 6.

After initially having Michael McBroom on his hip through about 900 meters, Club Wolverine’s Connor Jaeger started pulling ahead and he wound up winning by more than five seconds with a 14:51.06.  That performance jumped him to fifth in the world behind only Ryan Cochrane (14:44.03), Gregorio Paltrinieri (14:44.50) and Mack Horton (14:48.76). Jaeger will now be able to look forward as part of the Pan Pacifics Championship roster.

McBroom, meanwhile, had to hold off a hard-charging Jordan Wilimovsky of Team Santa Monica, 14:56.17 to 14:56.34 as both moved to eighth and ninth in the men’s metric mile. Club Wolverine’s Sean Ryan (15:07.49) finished fourth overall, just ahead of Andrew Gemmell’s 15:07.82 from the earlier heats.

Mission Viejo’s Janardan Burns had a strong swim in heat 6 of 8 with a 15:11.35 to take sixth, while Club Wolverine’s Michael Klueh was another early heat swimmer with a seventh-place 15:11.37.  Badger’s Ryan Feeley rounded out the podium with a 15:14.18.
