Men’s 400 Free

Zane Grothe continued to establish himself as the male American distance swimmer to watch with a top showing in the men’s 400 free. Grothe topped the competition with a time of 3:48.84 to finish just shy of his 2018 best of 3:48.59 from the Austin stop of the TYR Pro Swim Series.

Marwan Elkamash, swimming unattached, picked up a smooth second place finish with a time of 3:49.17, while HP Center Victoria’s Jeremy Bagshaw took third with a time of 3:52.05.

17-year-old Trey Freeman, representing Baylor Swim Club, grabbed fourth with a close 3:52.52, followed by fellow teenager Jake Magahey (16) of SwimAtlanta and his time of 3:54.71.

Dimitrios Dimitrious (3:54.88), Scarlet Aquatics’ Dare Rose (3:57.64), and Nick Carlson (4:04.98) completed the top eight.
