Patrick Callan 1:34.06 “I Guess I Translated it to the Race Tonight.”

Kevin “Patrick” Callan has seen tremendous improvement over the last four months. The high school junior from Oklahoma entered the 2016 Winter Juniors West meet as the 14th seed and trimmed off nearly three seconds to take 3rd at 1:35.62.  This weekend he carved just over 1.5 more seconds, erasing Jacob Molacek’s Region VIII Record at the Mizzou Sectional with 1:34.06. That time lowered over 2.5 seconds from the 2014 mark and would have been enough to land him in the B-final at the 2016 NCAA Division 1 Championships.

Patrick took time to tell SwimSwam about the race and what he did differently this season to prepare for it.

He’s a great kid, from a great family. I’ve enjoyed seeing him grow up and get faster.


Race pace 50s on short rest are extremely effective training for the 200. You have to train at race speed.
