Watch for yourself. The young lady does not have a weak stroke and has perfect turns! Might we be seeing a female Phelps developing?!

That was beyond impressive.
And only 16 years old!


Thanks for posting.

Beautiful, beautiful to watch. She really doesn't have a weak stroke and her turns were amazing ... fast flip, great underwater.

WOW.

My first time getting to watch her swim and she is beyond good. All four strokes just rock freakin solid. Great turns, wonderful power. 55.5 for free at end???? Yikes. Look out world.

Julia Smit broke the 400SCM IM world record just recently. A bit of post Olympic peaking?

Yow! That 4 minute mark is just about history. She is stunning . . . and who knew? way up north in the Dakotas!
