Arlington Aquatic Club 18-yeat-old Torri Huske put on a show on Friday night at the Richmond site of the TYR Spring Cup. Huske kicked the finals session off with a massive win in the women’s 200 free. She posted a 1:58.09, dropping 2.5 seconds, and picking up an Olympic Trials Wave II cut in the event. The swim makes Huske 9th all-time for 17-18 girls, and suddenly puts her in contention to make the final at Trials. Huske impressed earlier in April, when she clocked a 24.44 50 free, and 53.46 100 free, and now it appears she’s added the 200 free to the list of events she could be contending for a spot on the U.S. Olympic Team in.

Huske then went on to post a 57.61 to win the women’s 100 fly. Huske swam 56.69 earlier in April in the event. She still got out to a quick start, splitting 26.65 on the first 50, then coming home in 30.96.

Lauren Walsh, a 16-year-old out of Rapids Swim Team, took the women’s 100 breast. Walsh swam a 1:10.35, dropping from her 1:10.94 in prelims. Walsh’s prelims swim marked her first Olympic Trials Wave I cut.

NOVA 17-year-old Zoe Dixon clocked a 4:46.12 to win the women’s 400 IM. The swim was off her personal best of 4:43.01, which she swam in January of this year. Her personal best is under the Wave II cut.

Unattached 15-year-old Daniel Diehl won the men’s 200 free in 1:52.58. The swim marked a 0.28 second drop for Diehl. He split 25.89/28.21/29.52/28.96 by 50 respectively. Joshua Matheny, an 18-year-old from PEAQ, swam a 1:02.39 in the men’s 100 breast, getting his hands on the wall first. Matheny has been as fast as 1:00.17, which he swam in 2019. He’s been 1:00.31 in 2021.

North Baltimore 17-year-old Ryan Branon took the men’s 100 fly in 54.36, taking 0.34 seconds off his previous best. Tanner Nelson took the men’s 400 IM in 4:28.56.

Some of these young swimmers are benefiting hugely from the one year delay. I’m really looking forward to seeing how they do in June.

Can huske be part of the missing pieces of the 800 free relay the Americans need in tokyo 🤔🤔🤔

Looks she could make all 3 relays.

Ledecky way ahead in the 200, then a number of people seem to be in the 1:56 range – Smith, McLaughlin, Manuel, Schmitt, Margalis, maybe Cox and Madden. I imagine Huske will be right there with them.

Torri Huske has a better shot at top two finish in the women’s 200 meter individual medley than a top two finish in the women’s 200 meter freestyle.

The 2021 Olympic Team Trials schedule in the women’s events works out perfectly for Torri Huske:

100 FL
200 IM
100 FR
50 FR

No doubles!

I don’t think she has much of a chance in the 200 IM – Baker and Margalis are way ahead, not to mention Cox and Walsh look strong too.

I am not sure what her Trials schedule will be. 200 free seems like a good option for her.

Calendar Year 2021
Women’s 200 meter individual medley
Cox – 2:10.00
Baker – 2:10.30
Margalis – 2:11.03

No one has really impressed in the women’s 200 individual medley for the USA in calendar year 2021. It opens the door for Huske and Kozan. Better watch out for those teenagers.

The last time Kathleen Baker swam the women’s 200 meter individual medley, Kathleen Baker posted a time of 2:11.96 dated March 6, 2021.

And what is your point?
She will be 2:08 at Trials. Do you disagree with that?

Baker is a veteran who has shown she knows how to get it done.

By your logic I could say “And the last time Dressel swam the 100 free he went 48.82 dated April 10, 2021.” Does that result mean Dressel is doomed? Of course not.

Baker is a veteran who has shown she knows how to get it done like in the heats of the women’s 200 meter individual medley at the 2018 Pan Pacific Swimming Championships?

I was mistaken. The last time Kathleen Baker swam the women’s 200 meter individual medley, Kathleen Baker posted a time of 2:11.95 dated April 11, 2021.

Please show me this supposed 2:08.7 in calendar year 2021.

You sound fun at parties.

But on a more real note, why you simping for Torri? She’s not the best IMer and even she would gladly admit that. It also seems you don’t know how times work, the only time that matters is taper times. In season bears no meaning so why you bringing in season times up?

You are so insufferable. Why even have an Olympic Trials? Let’s just take everybody’s times from the most recent TYR Pro Swim. Whoever was the fastest, they win. But actually, none of those times are going to win Olympic Medals, so lets save the USOC money and not even send a team that has no chance of winning any medals with these times.

With this result Huske increased the size of 1:58 group of American swimmers to 10 and the size of 1:58 – 1:59 group to 17. The critical mass has been reached already – the explosion is coming.
1:58.06 has rank #4 currently.

Just need 2 or 3 of them to get 155 in the individual… Just so they can answer to the aussie in the 800 relay

Two 1:55 flat start swimmers with the Ledecky’s 1:54 is not the “answer” it is the “stay away” command to Australian 800 relay. It’s more than enough.
I wish Americans had such a luxury. We do have currently a huge group of experienced and young swimmers being 2 – 2.5 sec slower this target.
Who would be those who make a break of such size I honestly have no clue. I can guess more or less accurately who will make a relay team but if it would be any of them under 1:56 I cannot even suggest responsibly at this point.

Last Australian championships showed that they have very nice team capable competing at the world record level. But same meet also revealed that they have no B team to swim prelim race. Seriously, at least two members of A team have to swim prelim race if they want to get to the final.
Americans are currency in quite opposite situation. They can form 4 different team for prelim race but how strong will be the main team is hard to say today.

US cannot take 4 teams .That’s the thing with Internationals , you have to use whois there.
Plus all those entered as Relay members must swim .

So top 5 at Qs but I think everyone will want to swim prelims . Heck it’s at night !

There better be some massive time drops from the other female swimmers not named Ledecky at the 2021 TYR Pro Swim Series – Indianapolis, IN scheduled in May.
