Kevin Cordes re-claims American Record at U.S. Swim Nationals

PALM DESERT, June 30, 2017 – U.S. swim star Kevin Cordes owned the American Record in the 100 m Breaststroke until the Olympic final in Rio last year, when Cody Miller took it while winning the bronze medal.

On Friday, he re-claimed it at the U.S. National Championships and logged the second-fastest time of the year, part of an American tsunami that has now produced eight world leaders and 40 top-five marks on the world list in 28 events. And there’s still one day to go!
