I'm a little tired after 4 workouts in a row with AFAP or race pace work. Decided not to bother with weights while I was here. The chute will have to substitute.

Prelims was a little snoozy today. The women's 200 breast seemed very slow. Womens 100 free a little faster. Kelsie Worrell has a tough double tonight with the 100 free semi and 200 fly finals. The final of the men's 200 breast will be exciting. Much less excited for the men's 200 IM semis with all the scratches -- Prenot, Licon, Dwyer, Kalisz, etc. It's hard for me to believe these guys don't have the training base to survive a morning swim and an evening final.

While I was watching 200 breast prelims, Fort 21 wandered over to the Aquazone. She ended up having personal conversations with Ian Crocker and Nick Thoman. And then had Crocker take a photo of her and Matt Grevers. She said that Grevers seemed sad, understandable of course. Shirley Babashofff is signing autographs now so we are heading over.

    The men's 200 breast final was a great race! I was thinking the fight would be between Prenot and Licon for 2nd, with Cordes maintaining control of the race for first. Seeing Prenot pull ahead of Cordes in that last 50 was impressive! Will Tom Shields do something similar in the 100 Fly?

    I saw an interview with Grevers where he said something about the younger swimmers not leaving any room for him. He seemed upset and that's understandable.

    Phillips looked great in the 100 fly semis.

    Now on Grever's FB page, it says he is not retired. Natalie did not retire either. She appears to be over trained/underrested from her interview.
