Big start for US swimmers in 400 IM at Tokyo Games

Former Georgia swimmers Chase Kalis and Jay Litherland finished the United States 1–2 in the 400 individual medley with an impressive start at the Tokyo Games, a four-stroke event once owned by Michael Phelps.

With Phelps serving as color commentator for NBC Sports, Kalis took control of the third leg, the breaststroke, to take a 2 -second lead.

He won in 4 min 9.42 s, well ahead of Litherland, who moved from sixth place in the freestyle leg to take the silver medal. Litherland, 25, finished in 4:10.28, just ahead of bronze medalist Brendan Smith of Australia.

Kallis, who won a silver medal in Rio in 2016, is the sixth American to win the event in the last seven Olympics.
