LOVELAND, Colo. — When it comes to boys’ high school swimming in Colorado, there is no one faster in the 100-yard backstroke than Jack Thorne.

He just racked up his third consecutive state championship for Thompson Valley High School in Loveland. He did it by breaking his own state record in the process.

Mike Barz introduces us to Jack Thorne in the video clip above.
