Rafal Baran rounded out the men's finals swims on Friday with a 14th in the 400 IM (4:06.72). He was four-hundredths faster in the prelim to post the 12th fastest on record.

Two women posted top ten all-time swims. Marcia-Mariel Erhart had the fifth fastest time in a 400 IM (4:37.71) in placing 13th and Nadine Brockmann swam the seventh best 200 free time, finishing 13th in a time of 1:55.12. Amy Cujas picked up a 19th-place finish in the 100 back (1:00.41).
In relay action, the women's team of Cujas, Shear, Jess Daniel and Erhart finished ninth in the 200 free relay.
