Lilly King on Going 1:05 100 Breast After 8k Threshold Practice on Tuesday

2021 PRO SWIM SERIES – INDIANAPOLIS (#4)

Reported by James Sutherland.

WOMEN’S 100 BREAST FINAL

  1. Lilly King (ISC), 1:05.47
  2. Emily Escobedo (COND), 1:07.66
  3. Miranda Tucker (UN), 1:07.71

It was another dominant performance from Lilly King in the women’s 100 breast, as the reigning Olympic and World Champion jumped out to a big early lead in 30.66 at the 50 before extending her advantage coming home, ultimately clocking a time of 1:05.47.

That showing is just shy of King’s world-leading 1:05.32 set in late March.

Emily Escobedo moved through the field with a strong back-half of 35.55, edging Miranda Tucker at the wall for second in 1:07.66. Escobedo set a season best of 1:07.11 in Richmond back in January. Tucker dipped under her season-best of 1:07.94 for third in 1:07.71.

There is a striking similarity between the way she speaks and her style in breaststroke sprint. Maybe if she makes the pause between sentences a little bit longer she will be more successful in 200BR 😀

At least he doesn’t appear to be misogynistically obsessed with Hosszu at the moment.

Well, to those who didn’t get a joke. Something to think about before prelim races start.
I can easily throw the tennis ball over 50m pool with my right arm ( not across lines 😀 ). With the left arm I can hardly make 7 meters. Why? The same body, same type of mussels in both arms, same blood. Everything is the same and so different performance. The nerve signals are different. And all this comes from your brain. That is the main underappreciated organ of athlete’s body. There is no such a thing like “muscle memory” that the swimmer creates by swimming hundreds thousands miles. Muscle don’t have memory. The corresponding sequence of nerve impulses are stored in… Read more »

I think the issue is that your jokes are terrible, insensitive and sometimes just downright mean.

No, yozhik (hedgehog) is a creature with highly developed defence system. Not everybody are that lucky to have such a famous last name as yours. 😀

I don’t think she gets nearly the credit she deserves for being so consistently dominant. I realize it’s one event, and there’s not as much separation from the field as with Peaty, but geez, she always wins.

Apparently Cody did not survive that Tuesday threshold practice.
