Women’s 100 Butterfly– Doha World Cup – as reported by SwimSwim contributor Braden Keith.

Denmark’s Jeanette Ottesen-Gray won the women’s 100 fly in 56.74, which was her slowest time of the 2013 World Cup so far (these clusters can be pretty fatiguing, so it’s no surprise that times are trailing off a bit here in Doha – though the racing is still very good). Ottesen looked about spent by the end of her 100 fly.

Singapore’s Li Tao took 2nd in 57.10, and in race number three of the day, Hungary’s Katinka Hosszu was 3rd in 57.46.

Hosszu looked like she might have had more left in that race – she again swam a very heavy back-half performance, which is something she’s done a lot already in Doha. When a swimmer races as much as she does, though, there’s that opportunity to experiment with different pacing.
