Josh Prenot: You have to redefine what “Good” is (Video)

Produced by Coleman Hodges.

Reported by Robert Gibbs. 


  1. Josh Prenot, California, 1:59.51
  2. Marton Barta, SwimAtlanta, 2:03.80
  3. Mark Szarankek, Gators, 2:04.22

Josh Prenot picked up his second win of the meet, after winning the 200 breast yesterday. His time of 1:59.51 is his second-fastest in-season time ever, and would have placed him only about half a second behind Ryan Lochte at the Charlotte Pro Series swim going on at almost exactly the same time.  16 year-old Marton Barta of the hometown SwimAtlanta team placed 2nd here with a 2:03.80, followed by Mark Szaranek in 2:04.22.  The winner of tonight’s 1500, Sean Grieshop, placed 9th in 2:07.23.

I believe his winning 200 breast time was 2:09:49

The times and people you have are for the 200 IM, but the video clip is Prenot talking about the 200 breast.

Happy Monday! : )
