This morning in day 2 prelims of the 2016 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in Omaha, 2012 Olympian Rachel Bootsma missed the semifinals of the 100 back, clocking 1:01.34 to finish 18th with a spot as the second alternate.
At the 2012 Olympic Team Trials, Bootsma unseated Natalie Coughlin in her signature event, finishing second with 59.49. At the London Olympics, she made it into semifinals, finishing sixth in the second semi and failing to make it into finals. She also swam the backstroke leg in the prelims of the gold medal 400 medley relay.
Bootsma won NCAA championship titles in the 100 yard back in both 2013, 2015, and 2016.
Olivia Smoliga of Georgia leads the field going into semifinals tonight after clocking 59.65 in prelims this morning. Amy Bilquist of Cal is second (59.67), followed by Hannah Stevens of Mizzou (59.72), and Ali Deloof of Michigan (1:00.09).
