Ella Eastin ran away with the 400 IM, coming home in a freestyle split that was nearly identical to her initial fly leg to set a personal best at the 2019 TYR Pro Swim Series in Bloomington.

Building the race throughout, there was no stopping Eastin, as she cruised to a 4:37.18 finish, over three seconds faster than her closest competitor in Madisyn Cox (4:41.14). Makayla Sargent found a way to get her hand on the wall before Katie Ledecky (4:43.61), dropping a 4:41.33 to nab third. Brooke Forde put up a solid swim to cinch fifth with a time of 4:44.11, as she surpassed Bethany Galat (4:45.69) in the last half of the race. Emma Weyant continued to add to her already impressive meet by clocking in at 4:46.16 ahead of Allie Szekely (4:48.44).
