Some interesting races tonight:
Leverenz vs. Beisel in the women's 400 IM.
Franklin vs. Schmitt in the women's 200 free.
Franklin did NOT qualify 1st in the 200 back. I've not heard of Kendyl Stewart, but I expect her fortunes will be very different in the finals.
The men's 200 back is a similar story. Clary did NOT qualify first. That will change in the finals.
Also in the men's 200 back, cheers to Vyatchanin for qualifying 3rd. It's nice to see some swimmers don't retire at 25. I guess he is a better short course swimmer, but he'll be there tonight.
That not retiring sentiment goes for Natalie Coughlin too, who qualified 1st in the 50 free. I hope she takes it tonight, but the 100 yesterday shows that Megan Romano might have something to say about that.
The men's 50 free final has insane talent!


Don't call me this evening, I have plans.

It really was! A race I figured would be in the bag for Lochte got really interesting in the second half.

16 year old Justin Wright qualified first in the 200 Fly! He'll get killed in the final, but still a great prelim swim. His dad swims with Clovis Masters and was the Meet Director for 2009 scy USMS Nationals at Clovis North.

Well I have heard of her now. She actually make Franklin earn the 200 back victory. So I looked her up. 'turns out she is a really strong UCS freshman.

Tonight has some interesting races too:


The women's 100 back has a deep world-class field, as does the 200 IM.
There is a re-race of last night's awesome men's 400 IM in the 200 IM tonight.

'should be fun!

Or not - he just won the final! That's some moxie. :banana:

I did watch the 1500. That was fun.

Wow, I just looked at the splits for the women's 800. That last 100 was amazing.

8th at the 50, 5th at the 100, 4th at the 150, PR by 1.5. The kid was fully tapered and shaved for the high school section meet 3 weeks ago. How do you peak again so soon?

I found the clip of the 200 fly in case anyone missed it and wants to see it.

I saw the men's 200 fly--best race of the meet. I was sitting next to Justin Wright's Dad. He said , "yeah, he qualified first but he'll get killed in the final". I said "maybe not". HA! That's showing the old man, Justin!

Thanks for the clip. This might be out of date but according to http://new.berecruited.com/athletes/1675765 he is only 5'7".

I just asked my younger daughter, who is 5'4". She's danced with Justin a few times at school events and says 5'7" is probably about right.
