Kevin Cordes


Event: Men's 100m Breast, Men's 200m Breast


Cordes, 22, barely missed making the 2012 Olympic team, but he has been on a steady rise ever since. He was named the 2013 and 2014 NCAA Swimmer of the Year at Arizona, he won three medals at the 2015 World Championships (gold in the 400m medley relay, silver in the 200m breaststroke and bronze in the 50m breaststroke) and he is the American record holder in both the 100m and 200m breaststroke (short course). His father, Bill, was a quarterback for the University of Arizona in the 1980's. (Getty)
