Women’s 200 Free-US Open

Junior-to-be Kiera Janzen won the women’s 200 free in 1:58.28: that’s more than three seconds better than she had been coming into the meet. She was in a good battle most of this race with the likes of Sarah Henry and Kelly Stubbins from Australia, but Janzen put in a great final 50 to pull away.

Henry wound up 2nd in 1:58.89, followed by the Australian sprinter Stubbins, who was out like a bolt but faded at the end. She would still say after the race that she was surprised by her result and how good it was, as she doesn’t usually go after these 200′s.

North Baltimore’s Gillian Ryan was 4th in 1:59.46, followed by Longhorn Aquatics’ Quinn Carrozza in 1:59.51.

North Carolina’s Danielle Siverling just missed breaking the two-minute barrier, but was a lifetime best of 2:00.05 for 6th.
