1:42+ for the 200mm in November is very fast, actually 1:42+ is fast in March.
Add Ruck to the mix, and will Missy’s record of 1:39 stand at the end of the season?
Exciting possibilities with so many very fast women.

Missy somehow went out in 47.9, that’s incredible. That’s like when Conger took his 200 Fly out in 45 mid. Missy was 1:39.1, so someone will have to go out in 48.5 and be back in 50.6. That is not going to be easy. Even though Comerford, Haughey, and Ruck will be pushing each other, 1:39.1 is still 1:39.1. I don’t see that going down this year.
