Cammile Adams is going to the Rio Olympic Games after a first place finish in the 200m butterfly finals. Adams posted a 2:06.80 to come very close to her trials winning time from 2012.
At that point, Adams moved from seventh to third as she increased her speed heading into the third wall. At the 150, Adams was in first with Flickinger second and Bayer fourth.
With a 33.04 split on the final 50, Adams sealed the deal. Bayer tried to close on Flickinger and made up some ground, but ultimately didn’t have enough room to beat her.
