IRVINE, California, August 7. SWIMMING in the fifth of 12 heats of the men’s 200 free during prelims at U.S. Nationals, USC’s Reed Malone blasted in front of the pack and touched in a 1:47.78. That left him in fourth place overall after prelims, and with Ryan Lochte’s scratch, Malone will swim in lane three in the final, right next to top-seeded Matt McLean. After the race, Malone spoke with Swimming World about just how fast he thought he was swimming and how he’ll handle himself swimming among big stars like McLean and Conor Dwyer in the final.
