50m freestyle heats, not butterfly

Miss M

400 IM doesn’t look right. Lee was 6th

Awsi Dooger

I think you are correct. Lee is missing. I remember looking at the screen and all the qualifiers were below 4:21. Unless there was a late disqualification.

Honest Observer

The women’s 100 fly final will be fast; it seems likely, based on how they’ve been swimming this week, that either Huske or Curzan will take down Huske’s recent NAG record.
