WATCH: Josh Prenot Gets Solid Long Course Racing In Canada


Coming off men’s NCAAs Cal standout Josh Prenot is in Canada getting some long course racing in at the 2016 Canadian Olympic Trials.

In his first long course race since the Arena Pro Swim Series Orlando where he won the 200m breaststroke in a 2:09.50 and took the silver in the 100 with a 1:00.66, Prenot put up a 4:18.92 in the prelims of the 400m IM.

Prenot did not swim the event in the consolation final which he qualified for.

With just one event separating the 400m IM and the 100m breaststroke, Prenot got on the blocks and put up a 1:01.15 which got him a spot in the consolation final.

There, Prenot swim a 1:00.92, hitting just aroung the same mark that he swam about a month earlier in Orlando.

Prenot swam the 200m breaststroke today where he will be competing in the consolation final. If he’s around the same speed he was in Orlando, there’s a good chance that he’ll dip under the 2:10 mark.

Prenot is also slated to swim the 200m IM on Sunday before heading back to Cal to prepare for the 2016 US Olympic Trials.
