Ous Mellouli Pulls Out, Eyes On Fran

Ous Mellouli Pulls Out, Eyes On Fran

The men’s race in the Pan Pacific Swimming Championships 10K race was re-shaped when Olympic 1500-meter gold medalist Ous Mellouli decided to pull out.

With Ous out, eyes tend to focus back on Fran Crippen, the wily seasoned fast closer of the group…but Chip Peterson, Andrew Gemmell, Alex Meyer and the Aussie men will surround him like bodyguards around a President.

Catch the race live online on SwimNetwork on Sunday, August 22nd, starting at 9 am PT (Los Angeles time).
