MESA, Ariz.—Former Cavalier swimming standout Matt McLean won the 400-meter freestyle at the Arena Mesa Grand Prix Thursday in Mesa, Arizona. The meet featured many of the nation’s top swimmers as a lead up to the World Championship Trials, held in Indianapolis, Ind, in June.
McLean, the UVa volunteer assistant coach, was making his first long course meters appearance since the London Olympics, where he won gold with the U.S. 4x200-meter free relay. McLean claimed the 400m free in a time of 3:51.94, while also placing ninth in the 200m free in 1:50.00.
