Michael Andrew caught to his race technique of taking every stroke out valiantly, splitting 24.07 on the 50 fly adopted by 29.78 again and 33.72 breast. Andrew seemed sharp all through the vast majority of his final 50 till the lactic acid build-up slowed his tempo down into the flags, splitting 30.41. Nonetheless, Andrew pulled out his second 2021 PSS win within the 200 IM with a season better of 1:57.98. Andrew now strikes as much as No. 8 on this planet, remaining the quickest American this season with the one sub-1:59 time.

Seliskar stays the No. 8 American this season at 2:00.16 whereas Jay Litherland jumped Josh Prenot (2:00.62) for No. 9 within the nation at 2:00.20.
