Good job. Her splits were pretty nice. 28, 31 high , 31 high , 31 high. It is good that she is finally having her day. According to Gaines, she would be lucky to final at the Worlds. Now, if she has a good semifinal, she has a shot at winning.

Ricky Berens didn't swim today. Do you mean David Walters in the 100 free?

Clary swam the finals of the 200 fly and got 5th. He was 8th seed. Dave Walters last 50 of the 100 was pretty sweet.

I wouldn't want to piss off Jessica Schipper. She looks like she will beat your behind. Schipper looks hard core while DeScenza comes up angelic.

OH well, DeScenza got 4th in the 200 fly. Good effort. Schipper was just on a tear. It is still so odd that she couldn't make the Olympics last year. Hersey didn't even final.

In all her major international qualifying or just international meets she seems to slip up...Her prelim times are always up there at the top, then in semis or finals she just tends to go slower. But still she swam an amazing race, hopefully she keeps at it and gives 2012 a shot!

It is nice to see her challenge Schipper and that Chinese girl. Breeden and Hersey weren't even in the same ball park at Beijing.
