Video Interview: Vyatchanin Swimming Rest of Grand Prix, French Open

Nomadic backstroker Arkady Vyatchanin discusses his 200 backstroke at the 2014 Mesa Grand Prix. While he says that he thought he’d be a little faster in the 200 backstroke, he was happy with his win in 1:58.0. He also talks about his schedule for the rest of the summer, which is notable given that he has no country to represent for now, so he has more freedom to look for a ‘championship meet.’
