The 200 m breaststroke are his signature race, he won the gold medal at the 2015 World Championships (LC) in Kazan and also stepped up on the top of the podium at the SC World Championships in Windsor in 2016, he also is the short course (25 m) world record holder (2:00,44).

Koch tried new training methods before the 2017 World Championships in Budapest and wasn’t able to defend the title in the 200 m breaststroke he won two years ago in Kazan. The Euro Meet in Luxembourg was Marco Koch’s first international swim meet in 2007.
