    I’ve remarked that Chenoa Devine who was in lane 4 of the 400 free B-Final has applauded each of her opponents during the lane announcement before the start. Great attitude.

    Other remark. Sierra Schmidt has showed her dance talents behind the blocks. :)
    And she won the race a few minutes later.
