Matthew Klotz broke his second Deaf World Record in as many days at the Tiger Aquatics Summer Classic. The LSU swimmer posted a 2:03.50 in this morning’s prelims of the 200 backstroke. The old record stood at 2:04.61, which he set at the 2014 Junior National Championships.

Additionally, his time today is faster than the 2:03.79 Olympic Trials qualifying standard. Klotz will now be able to race both backstroke events at next week’s U.S. Olympic Trials.

The 20 year old started his record breaking weekend when he touched in 56.06 in prelims of yesterday’s 100 backstroke.
