Regan Smith concluded her meet in Ft. Lauderdale in dominant fashion, throwing down a dirty double of 57.9 in the 100 back and 56.6 in the 100 fly. After her races, Smith was pleased with her performances and looked ahead to world champ trials in the summer. The world record holder in the 200 back misses competing in her “baby” on the international stage, saying she has worked her butt off this year to get back at the highest level.
Kaylee McKeown just went 2.03.14 at NSW State Open.
Was seriously magical: 29:34, 31:39. 31:11, 31:30.
Looked like she might go sub 2:03 at one point
Waiting for the rest of the world to wake up & see Kaylee’s 200m Back WR 🇦🇺🏆 What’s scary is it’s not a meet she’d be tapered fully for. It’s only NSW Open. Will she become the first female under 2:03 at Aussies??
What an athlete!
Most underrated swimmer in the world
She absolutely is. Two individual golds plus the medley relay gold would have been the top performer in most Olympics. But she just happened to be the same year as McKeon’s 7 medals and Ariarne’s highly publicised battle with Ledecky.
Hope she can perform better under pressure.
I think she can and will beat Bacon and White in the 2 back. At least this summer she will.
Absolutely love it! Watching her interview, I can see that Regan practices the old school technique of getting A LOT of caffeine in her system before a race.
Just swim faster?
Well, she sure seems to be doing that!
Hopefully she contends in the 100 fly. She’s certainly in the form to challenge Curzan for second.
Or maybe she needs to worry about Curzan in the 200 back, seeing how fast Curzan is getting in backstroke.
in short course sure, long course I think she’s safe.
She missed the Olympics and last world championships teams in this event.
yes but not to curzan lol
2:03 this summer
Why the constant tone of exasperation from Regan? She says it’s “fun”, but why does it come across as though she is being held hostage by swimming?
Because at her level of swimming, you have to be absolutely perfect from day to day. And when you haven’t gone a PB in your two best events in 4 years, you’re gonna get frustrated.
I attribute it more to having just done a 100Ba/100Fl double than anything else. They typically do these interviews right after the race, so she is probably pretty wiped
Unless you know her personally, I think trying to make judgements from her tone is purely guessing. Why don’t you just let her be who she is rather than who you want her to be.
