Klotz swam a 2:02.54, taking off almost a full second from his previous best and the old deaf WR of 2:03.50. That 2:03 was done just under two weeks ago in Baton Rouge, Louisiana at the Tiger Aquatics Summer Classic.
Earlier this week, Klotz swam a 56.10 in the 100 back, just .05 off of his deaf WR of 56.06 from the same meet he swam the 2:03 at (the Tiger Aquatics Summer Classic).
Klotz was very close to qualifying for these Olympic Trials in a third event, the 50 free. His time of 23.46 from the Tiger Aquatics Summer Classic was just .17 from matching the qualifying standard for Omaha.
Klotz’s time of 2:02.54 earned him a tie for 35th, which is stronger than his 100 back finish of 41st place.
