In April, Joshua Zuchowski broke Chas Morton’s 200 IM NAG from 1984. Chas is such a legendary age group swimmer he’s even referenced in Workaholics. Keep up the great swimming references, Ders.

“It just wasn’t clicking, you take a long ass time off, like you take half a year off, you come back in December, January and that’s what you’re going to get.

I got my ass handed to me, and by my standards, that’s pretty unacceptable but it is what it is, hats off to him.” – Jo Schooling
