Considering Wilson’s a former NCAA DIii 100 breast good- medalist and still the division record- holder not too shabby. Wonder if he wonders how he’d have fared had he gone to a D1 school but training in Texas last couple of years almost made him an Olympian so he can’t complain.

As for Cordes the ok’d breaststroke master himself Sergio Looez did a great job in guiding his protege this lastbyearvand obviously Cordes’ decision to,go,to Singapore paid off big time.

Wonder if it’s the water over there?
