Pumputis Wins 200 IM to Close Maria Lenk

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil – Georgia Tech swimming and diving was once again represented by impressive performances out of two Yellow Jackets as they finished competing at Brazil’s National Championships, the 2019 Maria Lenk Trophy.

Sophomore Caio Pumputis took the 200 IM crown with ease, swimming a 1:57.70 to rank ninth overall in the world with a Worlds-qualifying A cut to become the third-best performer in Brazilian history. Pumputis only bolstered his resume after having already qualified for the World Championships and Pan American Games with his 200 breast gold.

Senior Rodrigo Correia continued his fine week of racing when he set a personal-best in the 50 back, swimming a Worlds-qualifying B cut 25.2. He then went on to win the B final of the 200 back with a time of 2:03.86.

With Pumputis’ meet performance, he was named to Brazil’s World Championships and Pan American Games rosters. He will compete in South Korea on July 12-28 for the FINA World Championships before turning around and swimming in the Pan Am Games in Peru on August 4-10.
