2017 U.S. National Championships & Worlds TrialsJune 27 - July 1, 2017
Everyone was on pins and needles heading into the men's 200m breaststroke -- knowing how deep the field was and knowing that the United States was going to have to leave three sub-2:10 200m breaststrokers home. In the end, Kevin Cordes got his hand on the wall first in 2:07.41. Cordes was actually under world record pace at the 150 and even though he fell off that pace it was still a big moment for him pick up a win in a field like that.
In the interview above, Cordes talks coming out on top in a stacked field and why that race meant so much to him.
