WOMEN’S 200 BACK FINAL
- US Open Record: 2:05.68, Missy Franklin, 2013
- GT Pool Record: 2:07.14, Missy Franklin, 2011
Hali Flickinger proved her scratch from the 200 free was worthwhile, jumping out to an early lead in the 200 back final and finishing strong in 2:10.56 for the win. That dips just below her old personal best of 2:10.60 set at the 2015 Nationals in San Antonio.
Erin Voss made up a few tenths on the last 50, but was about four short as she took 2nd in 2:10.94. Voss took off just over a second from the morning, while Flickinger took off nearly two. Melissa Postoll took 3rd in 2:12.84 after recording the top prelim time of 2:11.85.
