The U.S. men followed suit by going 1-2 in the 400 IM, just as the women did.

Carson Foster won the event in 4:14.73, holding off older brother Jake Foster by nearly a second. Foster finished in 4:15.78.

Carson re-broke his NAG record he set in prelims for the 15-16 age group, while Jake moved up to eighth in the 17-18 all-time rankings with his swim.

The Foster’s dad is in Fiji and uploaded the 400 IM final to YouTube which can be viewed below.

Carson’s time puts him seventh while Jake is ninth in the nation for the summer of 2018. Chase Kalisz is still on top with his 4:07.95 from Pan Pacs while Jay Litherland is second at 4:10.21 from Nationals.

Jake is about to start his senior year of high school and he is already committed to the University of Texas. Carson is also already committed and he is about to start his junior year of high school.

Both guys swim for the Mason Manta Rays in the Cincinnati area.
