Mallory Comerford: I didn’t expect to get nervous (Video)

Reported by Robert Gibbs.


Mallory Comerford, a Louisville sophomore, already had the fastest time in this event this season, but she knocked another half second off that mark to touch in 47.36, scoring nine points for the USA All-Star team.  Michigan’s Siobahn Haughey went 48.16, good enough for 2nd place and the 3rd-fastest mark of the season, behind Comerford and Simone Manuel.


Today’s session continued even after the livestream ended, with the two longer freestyle relays.  The USA All-Star relay of Comerford, Worrell, Kirsten Vose, and Smith took this event in 6:56.-09, with Vose recording the fastest split of the field, a 1:43.14.  The Big Ten “A’ team took 2nd in 7:00.40, while the USA “A’ team placed 3rd in 7:07.49.
