After having one of the best years of his career, Chase Kalisz showed no signs of slowing down in 2018, even after attending the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Monday in Atlanta. Kalisz swam a 4:10.80 to break his own pool record on Thursday night at the TYR Pro Swim Series in Austin. Kalisz won comfortably by almost nine full seconds over NC State’s Anton Ipsen (4:19.27) and Calgary’s Tristan Cote (4:20.93).

Kalisz was a little off his meet record from last year’s Atlanta Pro Swim Series where he swam a 4:09.43 in May 2017. Kalisz is proving he is not slowing down as we head into the 2018 season.

Daniel Sos (4:22.01), Jake Foster (4:23.72), Etay Gurevich (4:27.49), Eric Knowles (4:29.60) and Jarrett Jones (4:29.66) also swam in the championship final.

Kalisz is a member of Lenny Krayzelburg‘s Swim Squad.
