2014 Arena Grand Prix in Santa Clara
Men’s 200 Backstroke – FINALS
Make it four in a row for Arkady Vyatchanin. His stroke rate was a little faster than it was this morning, leaving the rest of the field behind him. He looked so smooth, as usual, winning the race with a time of 1:55.30. That time will stand as the fifth fastest time in the world this year. His first half looked good, but his back half was really impressive, splitting a 58.4. He was the only swimmer under a minute in the final 100.
