Florida swimmer Bobby Finke broke the American men’s record in the 1,650-yard freestyle by more than six seconds Saturday at the SEC Swimming & Diving Championships in Auburn, Alabama.

Finke, a sophomore, won in 14:12.08, breaking the record held by Zane Grothe, who swam the 1,650 in 14:18.25 at the 2017 USA Swimming Winter Nationals.

Grothe’s record itself was more than four seconds faster than the previous American mark.
