MEN’S 200 BREASTSTROKE – 2014 US Nationals
After the most exciting prelim swim of the meet, Kevin Cordes was suprisingly slow tonight to win the men’s 200 breaststroke. After a US Open performance this morning, he only finished with a 2:09.48, leaving the fans somewhat disappointed. Nic Fink had a good swim, however, dropping more than a second to finish second at 2:09.62. With those swims, Cordes and Fink will make the Pan Pac roster. Josh Prenot will be on the bubble for the Pan Pac’s team with his third place time of 2:10.43. Bj Johnson finished fourth with his time of 2:10.77. DJ Macdonald was fifth with his time of 2:11.27, followed by Cody Miller in sixth at 2:11.41. Will Licon and Matt Elliot finished 7th and 8th at 2:11.68 and 2:12.05, respectively. Cody Taylor dropped just over half of a second to won the B-final of the men’s 200 breaststroke with his time of 2:12.73. Brad Craig reached in for second at 2:12.78. Jonathan Rutter won the C-final of the men’s 200 breaststroke with his time of 2:14.45, a one and a half second drop from his morning swim.
