WOMEN’S 200 IM FINALS
- PSS Record: 2:08.66, Katinka Hosszu (HUN), 2015
- U.S. Olympic Trials Cut: 2:17.39
Kathleen Baker made her move on the backstroke leg of the women’s 200 IM, giving her over a second buffer on Madisyn Cox that she was able to maintain the rest of the way. Looking at the splits, the two were very close on all the other strokes, but Baker’s 32.49 back leg made all the difference.
The 23-year-old Baker finished in a time of 2:10.30, moving past Cox to become the second-fastest swimmer in the world this year, with only Australian Kaylee McKeown (2:08.23) ahead of her. It’s also Baker’s third-fastest performance ever, having been 2:08.32 in the summer of 2018 and 2:08.75 in February of last year.
Cox had a strong swim to finish in 2:11.22, less than a second off her 2:10.49 from the U.S. Open.
