Thowback Thursday Aaron Peirsol Sydney 200Back

Rob Emary

For this week's throwback we are going back to the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and seeing Aaron Piersol win his first medal as only a 16 year old!  After this swim Aaron dominated the 200Back for the next decade winning Olympic Gold in 2004 and Breaking the World Record in the 100 and 200 Backs more than 6 Times! His superpower was his finishing speed.  He was a master at exploding into that last 50 of the 200 and last 15M of the 100.  Watch the video even at 16 you can see him running down the field the last 50.

 

Here is the swim!
