In addition, Finnerty reigned supreme in the men's 200 breaststroke race, clocking 2:02.76, where he bested such elite swimmers as Marco Koch, Josh Prenot, Will Licon, Cody Miller, and Andrew Wilson. "That was a very painful race," he said. "Being able to get the win, in the end, was really awesome."
