Claire Curzan Talks Training Back-end Speed Ahead of Jr Worlds (Video)


Claire Curzan was one of the breakthrough juniors at the 2019 National Championships. Carrying over her massive short course season momentum to long course, she earned individual spots on the 2019 World Jr Team in the 100 fly and 100 back (as well as both 50’s of those strokes), which included a 2nd place finish in the 100 back and dipping under a legendary Mary T.

Curzan spoke with SwimSwam about training backend speed for her 100’s this summer, and how that may help this coming week.
