Sure, Nathan Adrian won the 50- and 100-yard freestyle events at the 2013 AT&T Winter National Championships, but going into the meet he hoped for a little more, he said.

"It was OK. I can't complain with a 41.3, but I would have loved to be a little faster than that," Adrian told Kelsey Floyd in an interview posted on

The 41.3 Adrian mentioned refers to his time in the 100 freestyle. He won that event in a final time of 41.39, which is .31 seconds slower than his American-record time of 41.08.

In the 50 freestyle, Adrian touched the wall in 18.89. Adrian also holds the American record in that event with a time of 18.66.

At the end of the meet, Adrian said swimming the times felt good, though he could have swam them better technically.

"Every one of those races, there was a lot that I did not execute properly," he told Jeff Commings of "Going those times felt great, but if short course was my emphasis for the end of the season I would go back and look at starts, turns, breakouts and how to execute those a little better."

Next, Adrian said he'll take a few weeks to focus on some hard training, both in California and Colorado Springs. He plans to race next at the Austin Grand Prix in January.
