Anthony had a busy couple of weeks, competing in the Phillips 66 National Championships in Irvine, California, and the Pan Pacific Championships in Australia. The busy schedule had little effect on Anthony, as he earned gold at Nationals and silver at the Pan Pacs in the 50-meter freestyle.
Anthony did not take a breath as he sped to the 3rd fastest time in the world, clocking in at 21.55 for the gold. It was his first national title since 2001.
After travelling to the other side of the world, Anthony earned silver in the 50 freestyle with a time of 21.73. His silver place finish qualified him to represent the U.S. at the 2015 FINA World Championships in Russia, as well as compete on the 400 Freestyle relay at Worlds.
He also participated in the 400 freestyle relay with Nathan Adrian, Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps at Pan Pacs. The team took the silver, behind the Australians, but Anthony believes in the future the team “express[es] a desire to train more, get ready, and have a better result.”
