Thomas had a truly breakout year in the pool, dropping more than two seconds in the 100-yard backstroke to win the Pennsylvania state title, set a U.S. national age group record and put him at the top of the high school rankings. He talks about the work he put in with his underwater dolphin kicks to make the swim possible, and how it sets up for long course racing. Be sure to visit SwimmingWorld.TV for more video interviews.
