In the main event of the evening, NBAC’s Michael Phelps won the men’s 200-meter fly by more than a second at the 2015 USA Swimming Winter Nationals.

Swimming in the final heat of the evening and meet, Phelps threw down a 1:56.11 to win his third national title of the weekend.  He already won the 200 IM and 100 fly the first two days.

Phelps’ time is well off his world-leading 1:52.94 from summer nationals, but was more than enough to win tonight.

Phelps’ training partner Chase Kalisz put up a 1:57.19 for second that included a 29.99 third 50.  NAC’s Dakota Hodgson placed third overall in 1:59.09.
