This morning in prelims, Douglass became the third fastest American swim ever as she swam a 2:08.29. She also was faster than her bronze medal winning time from the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
Douglass’ Split Comparison:
The biggest difference tonight was her back half. She had a huge breaststroke split and continued that momentum into the final 50 free and touched the wall for the win.
Douglass will swim the event at Worlds. She has about 50 minutes tonight until she swims the 50 free where she swam the third fastest time of this morning’s session.
