Joseph Schooling swam one of the fastest butterfly legs in history with a 43.60 on Thursday night at the 2017 NCAA Division I Men’s Swimming and Diving Championships. He swam on the fastest 400 medley relay in history that included John Shebat, Will Licon and Jack Conger. That quartet for Texas swam the first 400 medley relay in under three minutes with a 2:59.22.

After the race, Schooling commented on what led his team to that record-smashing performance and his teammates giving him a lead on the front half, as opposed to having to make up ground on his fly leg. He also previewed his chase of Tom Shields’ U.S. Open record in the 100 fly and discussed how he rebounded from the highs of the Olympic Games.

Check out the full playlist of interviews from the session, including videos featuring Schooling’s high school teammate Caeleb Dressel, Schooling’s fellow Longhorn Clark Smith and head coach Eddie Reese. Scroll through to find your favorite interviews.
