Arizona State freshman Cameron Craig was the breakout performer of the men’s Pac-12 championships last weekend, winning the 200 free in 1:31.71, the second-fastest time in the country so far this season, and then winning the 100 free in 41.95.

Now, Craig is in the midst of preparation for his first NCAA championships, so the Swimming World crew headed to Tempe this week to speak with the freshman. In this special on-deck edition of Off Deck, Craig sat down with host David Rieder.

Craig explained what contributed to his excellent performance at the conference meet, his reaction to those fast times, how ASU head coach Bob Bowman helped turn him into a 200 freestyler and what he’s expecting at his first NCAA championships.

Watch the full episode below.
