Madisyn Cox had the early lead at 50 meters, turning in 28.13, but Calypso Sheridan pulled up on the backstroke, and the two swimmers were neck-and-neck at 100 meters. Cox then pulled away on the breaststroke to lead by over a body lengthy and 1.52 seconds at 150 meters. Cox finished the race in 2:10.00.
I’m gonna miss you Cox. We had a good time
Surprised no one’s said it yet: she’s really embracing the name Medicine Cox.
Something something something *Scrubs reference* something something *Dr. Cox* something.
Already mentioned this on Saturday 😮😊😂
Can she possibly pull off a Maya Dirado and beat Hosszu in the 2IM next year???? Highly doubt it, but I’ve been surprised too many times over the years
Ye Shiwen could or Margalis. Not giving up on either of them quite yet
Regan Smith if she suddenly loves breaststroke.
Making USA Oly team, and finals at Tokyo might be a good, tough, but achievable goal. Bronze would be over the moon fantastic. Cox has pretty good back half, but needs work on the front half.
I really hope the ISL ban didn’t play into this somewhat early retirement. Either way, best wishes Madisyn! Fantastic IM and Breaststroker.
Good luck to Madisyn next year, hopefully she’s on the Maya Dirado plan
I know a lot of med schools are phasing out lectures so that the traditional 8A-5P lectures 5 days per week are somewhat obsolete, but volunteer assistant coach during med school would be difficult. Best of luck w application process.
Lectures are the tip of the knowledge iceberg. I coach club at a university with a top med school and the med students disappear after the first month. I had a 3rd year (research) try to coach and it lasted a few weeks. Amazingly smart individuals with very little extra time.
I know of a few mainstream Med schools where they’re in class 8/9am-noon/1pm and then off the rest of the day to study, etc.
All the best heading into med school!
Madisyn certainly outclassed the rest of the field at Stanford. Too bad about the vitamins: best wishes for 2020!
