Lochte Wins 400 IM at Pan-Pacs

It was a night to remember for US swimming as a whole, but Ryan Lochte shone brightest as he won the 400 IM with a very impressive 4:07.59 time that saw him be under the world record pace for much of the race. Fellow American Tyler Clary finished 2nd, but surprisingly Michael Phelps didn’t even qualify for the final. This was because of a rule that states a country can have a maximum of two swimmers in the final. Phelps’s prelim time was 4th fastest, but both Lochte and Clary were faster.

In the 100m freestyle, Nathan Adrian set a Pan Pacs record, while Rebecca Soni swam the 3rd fastest time ever in the women’s 100m breaststroke.

Natalie Coughlin won her third consecutive 100m freestyle in the Pan Pacs, and both the mens and women’s 4X200 freestyle relay teams set Pan Pacs records.
