Australia’s Clyde Lewis captured the men’s 200-meter IM at the 2015 FINA World Junior Championships.

Lewis turned in a top time of 2:00.15 as no one else could even come closer than a second in the finale.

Spain’s Hugo Gonzalez initially looked to have placed second in 2:01.88, but drew a disqualification in the event.

Hungary’s Daniel Sos wound up second officially with a time of 2:01.78, while USA’s Sean Grieshop slid up to bronze with a third-place time of 2:01.83.

Canada’s Javier Acevedo (2:01.91), Russia’s Nikolai Sokolov (2:02.98) and Great Britain’s Martyn Walton (2:03.11) finished fourth through seventh.

In his fourth final of the night, USA’s Michael Andrew finished last in 2:06.54 as the workload obviously took a lot out of him.  Andrew led the way in prelims with a top-seeded time of 1:59.86 that also was the top time by an 18-and-under this year.
