Cordes, who picked up gold on the 2016 Olympic medal relay, reflects on his individual performance in Rio where he finished just off the podium in the 100 breaststroke and 8th in the 200 breaststroke.  He sees room for improvement in 2020, planning for the transition from US Olympic Trials to the Olympics Games.

He’s got his work cut out for him. Auburn is nicer in the winter, but not so sure he shouldn’t move to Kansas and train with MA every day. MA along with Whitley (4 years older) will definitely be the markers going into 2020.

But I fear the worst in the next few weeks with that kind of things…. 😆
I will not ask you how do you do. However I would like to post videos as I used to do it. When I posted the links the videos used to appear on the page. Now we can see only the links and are forced to leave swimswam to watch the videos. I wonder what has changed since the new format of the comment section. I hope I’ve been clear. I’m not a specialist.
Example. The famous pool where MA trains.

Only the link appears. Unlike Mel Stewart’s videos above. What I have to do differently? Or maybe it’s not possible anymore for commenters?

Imagine Whitley in MA’s training pool!
Once he dives I think in 2 strokes he touches the wall.

Think I might have to print this out and frame it, if I’m interpreting it correctly.
