She tied for the silver medal in the 100 free and placed fourth in the 100 fly, putting up lifetime-best times of 54.68 and 58.86 in the respective events.

After Monaco and Canet, Hinds will head back to Athens to put in another couple months of hard work before heading off to her first Nationals since Trials in 2016.
