Josh Prenot Pops World’s 6th Fastest 200 Breaststroke – Race Video

2015 WORLD UNIVERSITY GAMES

Excerpt taken from our Day Four Finals Recap:

MEN’S 200 BREASTSTROKE – FINALS

Following Leah Smith’s lead, Josh Prenot came up big, winning the men’s 200 breaststroke with the sixth fastest time in the world this year at 2:08.90. His post-race celebration, however, was just as good as his race, so make sure you watch that (at 2:28 in the video) if you weren’t able to watch live. Prenot’s time was close to a half second faster than his personal best, leaving him tied with Ross Murdoch’s 6th ranked time in the world this year from the British Championships in April.

Kirill Prigoda of Russia was just outside of medal position, finishing fourth with a 2:09.97. Calum Tait (GBR) finished fifth with a 2:10.57 and Italian Luca Pizzini finished sixth in 2:11.17.
