Notably, her time here tonight would have finished second, 0.99 seconds behind Katie Ledecky who won in a 1:55.14. Tonight, Ledecky won the event swimming a 1:54.50.
Notably, Gemmell’s time tonight would have earned a bronze medal at the 2022 World Championships. The US did not have any swimmers in the final in the event.
Gemmell is entered in the 100 fly, 400 free, and 200 IM later in the meet. She is committed to Texas for fall 2023.
