What a talent. I’m looking forward to seeing her represent us in Rio swimming the 200 fly.

Hopefully she does. She doesn’t want to breaking Mission Vireo’s streak of having an Olympian every Olympics since 1976.

Is the picture of her swimming for this article the one from her race where she swam a 51.53? Because if it is the actually swim, she wasn’t even wearing a very fast suit.
1) Her low cut front definitely catches water more than some of the higher necked (faster suits)
2) The leg suits that cover the thighs are faster too.

So she can take even more time off with a faster suit.

Tony, do you know when/where this picture of her was taken? Thank!

That’s not a picture of her swim.
She’s very talented but 51.53 and 1.43.01 in a training suit….

That’s a picture from a photo session.
The pics were posted last month on swimswam.
