I would like to raise the question of whether Ledecky will swim in the prelims for the mixed free relay. Savimg her best for the worlds she could easily be the 3rd or 4th best American in the 100 free.

Although I love watching Ledecky race and win medals I really doubt it …. there would be too much controversy for not putting the 2nd best American in the prelims.

Sorry, I misunderstood. If Ledecky is in shape for it ( which I am not sure she is after such a taxing meet), then for sure!

With Sarah, Katie and Katinka entered in multiple events, it will be interesting to see who gets the most medals.

Katie may get the most when you add in the relays

opps meant to say, she won’t win all 4 golds

As good as Sarah is, in my opinion she will win all 4 golds. I think we might see a upset at 50 free.

For refrence, here are the top ten male textile Preformers in every event. I am including leg skins and full body suits, as I think modern day tech suits equal them and I thinl FINA should have never banned them in the first place.
