Awesome job Paul Rogers! Here’s hoping his time holds and Cal Poly gets to send him to NCAAs

He added 2.5 seconds from his morning swim? Woah.

1:33.7–>1:36.1. Something is up or he didn’t try which would be unfortunate.

I believe he had a ready set the record and done a PB in the opening leg of the 800 free relay the prior day (with a 1:34.). A bit disappointing to see the time drop in the finals, but like was said he still won. and he’s shown he can swim that type of time more than once in a meet
