Chupkov raced his way to a winning effort of 2:10.19 in the finale.  That swim broke his own mark of 2:10.73 set earlier in the meet, but fell short of his World Junior record of 2:09.64 clocked at Worlds.

Australia’s Matthew Wilson placed second tonight in 2:11.23 with Japan’s Ippei Miyamoto claiming third overall in 2:11.59.
