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.
Kohinata Kabuki of Japan ran down Prenot and Craig Benson (GBR) down the final 50 meters of the race, splitting 32.82. He ran out of room and was unable to catch Prenot, but he did get his hand on the wall ahead of Benson for the silver medal. Kohinata finished second with a time of 2:09.08 to Benson’s 2:09.10.
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.
Dimitry Baladin (KAZ) and Flavio Bizzarro (ITA) rounded out the final of the men’s 200 breaststroke at 2:11.34 and 2:11.70, respectively.
