Wow, what a back half. That's closer to a full second difference once you take out the block start. Whew, that's some swimming.

Descenza won the 200fly in a time that would have gotten her onto the team ... that has to hurt. She gave a very eloquent answer. I hope she sticks around for awhile.

I saw that too, my heart broke a little for her. However, she is such a pro... I hope that she stays in it for another 4 years as well - she's a great swimmer to look up to.

I hope she breaks the WR, I really wanted her to do well at Trials. Those two 3rd place finishes (again) must have been unbelievably rough.
