2:11 LCM 200 IM? Umm….




Are we really going to have a problem about his times?


If u want to look at his times don’t look at LCM. Most swimmers only swim it during the summer which is a short period of time. Could have big drops this summer who knows.


Exactly @swammer


He’s an exquisite athlete and the long course season doesn’t give you a lot of time for many changes but I can tell this summer will have big drops and overall he’s an outstanding swimmer who deserve to be recognized for his achievement.


He’s an exquisite athlete and the long course season is very short in the summer which doesn’t leave much room for changes but I have a feeling he’s gonna do amazing and overall he’s an outstanding swimmer who deserves to be recognized for his achievements.


According to SwimSwam’s converter, that’s right on par with his SCY times anyway. Who cares? College teams don’t care about long course times
