WOMEN’S 200 BACK FINAL
- PSS Record: 2:05.94, Regan Smith (USA), 2020
- Wave II Olympic Trials Cut: 2:12.94
The third 50 turned out to be the difference-maker for Bacon, as she pulled ahead by .06 before the two produced matching 32.92 splits on the last length, leaving the reigning NCAA champion with the victory in 2:06.84 to Smith’s 2:06.90.
The time is a massive personal best for Bacon – she entered the day with a best of 2:08.82, and then lowered it to 2:08.34 this morning – and moves her into third in the world this season and first among Americans.
Smith, the world record holder at 2:03.35, goes well under her season-best (set this morning at 2:08.74) to move into fourth in the world and second among U.S. swimmers.
