Kate Douglass took wins in the 200 Breast, 50 free, 200 IM, 100 Breast, and 100 Fly this weekend at the 2023 Atlanta Classic. She and UVA teammate Jack Aikins discuss how LCM training has been so far in the season and what they were hoping to gain from coming to this meet. Douglass also discusses what her first meet as a pro swimmer was like and attending the Team USA relay camp in Austin last month.
Kate Douglass will not qualify for the 2023 World Aquatics Championships in the (W) 200 Individual Medley due to Bella Sims and Katie Grimes.
I assume you meant to say Alex Walsh and Leah Hayes. Grimes and Sims have PBs of 2:12 and 2:14
Fraudulence at its finest.
LMAO??? No way you messed up like that
I have successfully got under the skin of another poster. Note the spelling (Weinstien) from the imposter.
I don’t think it’s that you’ve gotten under anyone’s skin as much as you just get on our nerves. To get under someone’s skin you have to say things that bother them that are based in truth, you’re just full of nonsense that nobody believes is in any way rooted in reality
how did you mess up this bad?? The only events I can see those two being favored to win over any other American is like… the 400 IM SCY?
I think it’s fake. Look at the spelling of the names.
LOL. Now the crazy troll has a fake even trollier version running around
I’m the fly in the ointment, monkey in the wrench, pain in the arse.
Yippee Ki Yay!
The spider man pointing meme has never been more relevant
tbh good catch, high quality troll if it is one though you can’t even tell it’s fake from the comment itself
Yeah but that’s also a sign we are dealing with a high quality troll here. You can’t even tell if it is one.
Often imitated, never duplicated.
Neither of them can beat her in that event. You serious?
if she swims a 2:12 in at trials, she wont even get top 5. She needs to be 2:08 to make it, and thats still pushing it. I was hoping to see a 2:09 from her at this meet, as that would be in line with her other great swims.
wait… when is Nationals in relation to Worlds?
The swimming events (50 meter pool) at the 2023 World Aquatics Championships commence 23 Aug 2023.
Off by a month. July 23rd. US Trials start June 27th
Sorry, my bad.
swim swam do you know for sure if I chose the 200 im in the trials? i hope it does
After posting a personal best time in the W 50 FR (24.40), I have my doubts.
She swam 2:12 IM two days ago, which is kind of underwhelming after her 1:48 yards
In addition, Leah Hayes is not going to lie down for Kate Douglass in the women’s 200 meter individual medley.
Good luck at the 2023 Phillips 66 National Championships!
Not a bad start. Hope she and her UVA teammates can take it up a few more notches before Nationals.
Shoutout to every swimmer who gives interviews to Swimswam or any other media outlet.
Meanwhile, mister Remel is still refusing to talk to the media to the point where his Florida teammates can’t give interviews when he’s competing.
This what the local Atlanta press reported:
Contrast to Mikaela Shiffrin, who failed repeatedly in Beijing but stood up and answered every question, then responded with a phenomenal season this year.
Eh, people are different though.
USA Swimming does not need a drama queen.
Mikaela does not need Winter Olympics medals to justify her legendary status. Unlike swimming, skiing has a legitimate pro circuit.
All for letting people do what they want, for the most part, but this is a bit much.
It’s like they’re trying to alienate people.
Edit – And it’s not like the rest of the squad couldn’t set conditions on these interviews. “Don’t ask about Dressel.”
Then it’s up to each outlet to decide if they want to agree or not. It’s just weird to have a blanket “no media” thing going on.
Does that explain no KL interviews.
What a joke! So everybody suffers because of one person can’t explain why he quit in the middle of a championship. Wonder what their agents and sponsors think
I can’t agree more!
That’s being a PRO means!
I feel like this weird aloofness and secrecy is just making people MORE curious and invested in finding out what’s going on.
Any interview with Dressel?
