Connor Jaeger set a U.S. Open record in the men’s 1500 free Sunday evening at Olympic Trials, but he had to hold off a hard charge from Jordan Wilimovsky over the second half of the race. Afterwards, Jaeger reflected on a long week in which his 400 and 1500 were a full week apart, and he discussed why he thinks he can be faster come Rio.

Wilimovsky also discussed his race and what it felt like to stay so close to Jaeger. He then compared swimming in the pool and open water and explained what he will have to do to balance the mile in the pool and the 10k open water in Rio.
