2013 US Winter National Championships – Men’s 200 Breaststroke – as reported by SwimSwam / Jared Anderson:

Tennessee grad Brad Craig led all 200 yards of the men’s breaststroke event, going 1:52.99. Former Harvard star Chuck Katis looked like he might make a run at about 125 yards in, but Craig was able to keep Katis at bay. Katis was forced to settle for second place, going 1:53.84, a lifetime best. Louisville’s Addison Bray is having an outstanding weekend, and he took the bronze medal, going a lifetime-best 1:54.89, his second PR of the day.

Michigan’s Richard Funk was fourth, going 1:55.01, and Mike Alexandrov was fifth in 1:55.04. Narrowly behind those two were another pair, 3-time-defending Big Ten champ Cody Miller (1:55.10) and Cal’s Josh Prenot (1:55.17). Louisville’s other breaststroker, Kameron Chastain, was 8th overall.

16-year-old NCAP swimmer Carsten Vissering won the C final in a nice time of 1:56.51.
