Simone: “I usually don’t have that speed at this point” (Video)

Reported by Chelsea Howard. 



Only two swimmers in the women’s 50 free made it under the 25 second mark in finals. Stanford’s Simone Manuel won with a time of 24.66 and Madison Kennedy was second with a 24.99. Lia Neal was third with a 25.14. Manuel said after the race that the 50 felt “more like a 100”.

One thing to note was Kelsi Worrell (26.59)  swam butterfly instead of freestyle. In the B Final, Kendyl Stewart(26.37) swam butterfly as well and Katie Meili swam breaststroke (30.94).
