O Canada! Minnesota’s Kierra Smith is one of a number of Canadians currently dominating the Big Ten Conference Championship.
Minnesota freshman Brooke Zeiger blew out the 400 IM field to help Minnesota pad its points lead despite a 100 backstroke deficiency. The Gophers lead by 47 with one day to go.
IU’s Brooklynn Snodgrass was unstoppable, winning a big 100 back battle, but a Hoosier 400 medley relay DQ wiped out her other big swim and let the Golden Gophers expand their points lead.
Already this season she is within one second of that mark (1:40.31), and swimming faster in the event than she was last year. Going into the meet last season the American record was 1:41.21. Now, she’s swimming times like that in-season which is what puts this swim on this list.
