Aaron Peirsol Still Loves Watching Backstroke – Video Interview

200 Backstroke – 2014 US Nationals

Ryan Lochte took it out very strong for the first 100 of his 200 back. He went into the 150 with a .8 second lead ahead of Ryan Murphy and Tyler Clary. Tyler Clary powered through his final 100 to win the race with his time of 1:54.73. That will book him his ticket to the Gold Coast for the Pan Pac Championships. Ryan Murphy had enough of just missing making the team. He finished in the top 2 for the first time, earning himself a roster spot on the Pan Pacs team as well. He finished with a time of 1:55.99. Ryan Lochte finished third at 1:56.47, which isn’t the worst thing in the world for him, as he is already on the Pan Pac’s team and can go for a faster time again in a few weeks. Jacob Pebley finished fourth with his time of 1:56.68, followed by Connor Green in fifth and 1:67.60. Carter Griffin finished 6th with his time of 1:58.87. Sean Lehane and Jonathan Robers were 6th and 7th at 1:59.01 and 1:59.78. It came down to three in the b-final of the men’s 200 backstroke. Robert Owen got his hand on the wall first for the win with his time of 1:59.78. Jack Conger was second with his time of 1:59.90 and Drew teDuits was third at 1:59.96. Curtis Ogren won the C-final of the men’s 200 backstroke with his time of 2:00.86.

Your video interviews are good but too short!
Very cool to see the legend Aaron Peirsol. He still looks very fit.
