Cordes Firmly on Top of US 200 Breaststroke Pile

Going from 13-14-15 to 19 strokes in the last 50m is what made that 200m “only” very good, and not awesome.
This guys has an amazing kick, and he can glide like no one else.
I would love to see him try 12-14-14-14(15) strokes. Head down and glide.

Here is his 200m from the US trials final.
