MESA, Arizona, April 25. MICHAEL McBroom had heard enough criticism from coach Eddie Reese about not taking his 400 free out faster, so he made an aggressive push in the race at the Arena Grand Prix, leading the pack after 200 meters.

In this video interview, McBroom talks about his fear of being caught in the final 100 meters and how it could translate into the 1500 freestyle later in the meet.
