(Video Interview) Michael Andrew Excited About Prospects in 200 IM

Michael Andrew finished third in the 100 breast on the final night at the arena Pro Swim Series meet in Santa Clara, but he came back minutes later to tie for the win in the 200 IM, as he and Jay Litherland both touched in 2:00.48. Hear what Andrew had to say after the race.

Andrew explained how he has emerged from a recent “slump” (by his standards, at least) and discussed how he makes sure he doesn’t put too much pressure on himself. He also discussed what events he’s concentrating on for World Championship Trials and why he think he might have an opportunity in the 200 IM, despite having one notable weakness in that race.
