Kevin Cordes of Fox Valley took down the U.S. Open and American records today in the second semifinal of the men’s 100 breast, swimming the event in 58.94.
The previous American record was a 58.96 set by Eric Shanteau during the 2009 super-suit era FINA World Championships in Rome. The previous U.S. Open record was a 59.01 set by Mark Gangloff, also during the 2009 super-suit era.
Cordes split 27.58 on the first 50 and 31.36 on the second. His time tonight puts him second in the world this year. Only Great Britain’s world-record-holder Adam Peaty is ahead of him with 58.36.
Tomorrow night, Cordes will take on Cody Miller of Badger Aquatics, who swam his way to become the fourth-fastest American in history with 59.09. Also in the field will be Cal’s Josh Prenot (59.60) and 17-year-old Michael Andrew of Indie Swimming (59.85)
