Athens Bulldog’s Chase Kalisz looked to be in position to claim yet another TYR Pro Swim Series win, but King’s Daniel Roy crushed a 33.54 split on the final 50 to take the win in 2:09.73. That demolished his own National Age Group record of 2:10.77 set last year at the World Junior Championships. Roy became the first 18-and-under American man to ever break 2:10.

Kalisz also broke 2:10 for the first time, finishing second in 2:09.90. Athens Bulldog’s Nic Fink swam a strong time of 2:11.33 to take third.

Tiger Elite’s Kevin Cordes was fourth in 2:13.19, one hundredth ahead of Sandpipers’ Cody Miller (2:13.20). Marit Amaltdinov (2:14.42), Penn Charter’s Reece Whitley (2:14.85) and Club Wolverine’s Charlie Swanson (2:17.66) were also in the final.
