AMAZING SWIM!!!! Seemed a bit shallow on the first pullout due to a flat start.

Not fair to compare to Cordes since he’s a high schooler, but his AR swim from earlier this season shows a deeper, cleaner start/pullout which leads to a cleaner breakout.

I thought the same thing when I was watching it, maybe he will be able to take off a little bit more at NCSAs or whatever championship meet he goes to with NCAP if he cleans that up.

Not to be mistaken as a shot at Carsten. That was a great swim. But swimmers can always make subtle changes for great improvement.


Does anyone else think his tempo is a little slow for a scy 100 breaststroke? No doubt that it was fast for a high school, but if he had a faster tempo I think he could be a 52 mid. Even cordes who is 6’5 has a tempo of 1.16 on the first 75 while pushing 1.11 on the last 25. Carsten was around a 1.2-1.23 the whole race. Looking forward to see what this kid can go in college.
