CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Anthony Ervin completed a strong weekend at the Arena Grand Prix in Charlotte by defeating a competitive field in the 100-meter freestyle that included former Olympians Cullen Jones, Ricky Berens and Garrett Weber-Gale. 

Ervin made the turn in a blazing 22.9 seconds and finished in 49.14 to beat out Berens and Michael Klueh. Weber-Gale was fifth and Jones seventh. 

The win comes one day after Ervin beat a loaded field in the 50 free. 

Eleven-time Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte competed in two events Sunday, finishing third in both the 200 IM and the 200 backstroke. In both events, Lochte led up until the final turn but faded in the final 50 meters. 

Lochte has only recently returned to training full time after wrapping up production of his reality TV show.
