Carson Foster finds redemption at Olympic Trials

Carson Foster, who at the last Olympic trials finished a whisker away from the Tokyo Games because of a third-place finish, won the men’s 400-meter individual medley on Sunday with a time of 4:07.64 at the U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Indianapolis.

“The first thing I thought of when I did it is I have so many — probably 25 family and friends sitting in the stands and … I wish I could just jump that fence and go hug them and be with them,” Foster told NBC.

Foster bested runner-up Chase Kalisz, who came in at 4:09.39. Kalisz was a gold medalist in the 400m medley at the Tokyo Olympics.

Taking 55.31 to finish, Gretchen Walsh held off all challengers to secure a win in the women’s 100m butterfly — a day after she managed a world record in that event — to make her first Olympic team.

“Making the team was the biggest goal,” Walsh told NBC. “But getting a world record was absolute insanity, so I couldn’t ask for a better first event.”

Torri Huske (55.52) and Regan Smith (55.62) trailed Walsh.

On Father’s Day, expectant dad Nic Fink finished first in the men’s 100m breaststroke with a time of 59.08. His pregnant wife was in attendance as he punched his ticket to the Olympics for the second time.

Charlie Swanson came in second at 59.16, while Josh Matheny landed in third at 59.23.
