Updated Psych Sheets

The link above includes the updated psych sheets. There weren’t many changes that should staggeringly impact the race for national titles or even A final spots. The most significant were the entries of Braden Vines from the University of Texas to the 200 breast, 200 IM, and 400 IM, and Clayton Forde adding the 200 IM to his existing schedule. That, and updating to add the World Records set at the end of the World Championships, including from Regan Smith in the 100 and 200 backstrokes.

Does anyone know how I can get the Omega timing live results? I tried last night and this morning and don’t know what I’m doing wrong. When I click the results link in this article it takes me to the Omega results page but it is blank. When I click the results tab for the championships on the Omega timing site directly, it takes me to some type of login page. Help would be appreciated!
