Kohlton will swim in the Olympic Trials later this month in both backstrokes. His highest ranking is 21st in the 100 meter backstroke event. This is a very respectable seeding considering he is only 18 years old. As long as the psych sheet is posted, it can be found at: http://www.usaswimming.org/USASWeb/_Rainbow/Documents/62596663-6b19-4c96-b628-eefb9c064290/Psych%20Sheet_US%20Olympic%20Team%20Trials.pdf

Earlier in the year Kohlton had broken the National Age Group record in the 100 yard backstroke for the 17-18 year old male swimmers. His relay lead-off time of 46.7 was faster than Jamie Cramer’s 100 backstroke national record of 47.3 at the time. This makes Kohlton the first 18-under swimmer in the United States to swim under 47 seconds. While it’s still posted, the National Age Group records can be found at: http://www.usaswimming.org/USASWeb/_Rainbow/Documents/4c737824-bc77-4246-8510-296e69e079bb/SCY%20-%20May%2008.pdf
