Top-seeded Penny Oleksiak is no longer swimming the 100 free at this morning’s Pro Swim Series prelims in Des Moines.
The Canadian co-Olympic champ was the top seed, but no longer appears on heat sheets. The top seed will now fall to Margo Geer, who was second in this event at the Pro Swim Series opener in Knoxville. The winner was Simone Manuel, who tied with Oleksiak for the 2016 Olympic gold medal, but who is also not competing in Des Moines.
The other high seed to scratch is another Canadian – Faith Knelson, who was the fifth seed in the 100 breaststroke. The only other scratch out of the circle-seeded heats is Olivia Masterson, who swims for the in-state Iowa Flyers Swim Club.
