WOMEN’S 100 FREE FINAL
- PSS Record: 53.12, Sarah Sjostrom (SWE), 2016
The results of the women’s 100 freestyle final were nearly identical to the prelims, with top seed Linnea Mack using a big underwater off the turn to charge to the lead and claim the win in a time of 54.00.
Mack had set a personal best time of 53.78 in the prelims, making her the fourth-fastest American this season.
Kate Douglass, who held the slight lead at the 50, tied her prelim time of 54.30 to take second. Both swims are Douglass’ fastest ever, having entered the meet with a PB of 55.24 from November’s U.S. Open.
Catie Deloof charged back from sixth at the 50, producing the fastest back-half in the field (27.84) to snag third in 54.36, .04 slower than the prelims. Three others broke 55 seconds, led by veteran Allison Schmitt (54.60) who scratched tonight’s 400 free to focus on this race.
