Tyler Clary does belly flop at U.S. Swimming Championships (video)

Tyler Clary

Tyler Clary showed prowess in every stroke by winning the 400m individual medley at the U.S. Swimming Championships last week. Then, he showed the crowd in Irvine, Calif., a different mastery.

Clary, the Olympic 200m backstroke champion, belly flopped into the competition pool before Saturday’s finals session. It’s become a signature move for the Charlotte-based swimmer who dreams of racing stock cars after Rio 2016.

His belly flops have been reported on since at least April 2011.
