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.
WOMEN’S 100 FLY FINAL
- PSS Record: 56.38, Sarah Sjostrom (SWE), 2016
- Wave II Olympic Trials Cut: 59.59
It was two races and two extremely close and exciting battles for Regan Smith in tonight’s session, as the 19-year-old followed up her runner-up finish in the women’s 200 back with a big win over tough competition in the 100 fly.
Smith clocked in at 57.68, out-touching Kelsi Dahlia and Kate Douglass by less a tenth, to tie her season-best time set in this morning’s prelims. Smith’s two swims today trail only her 57.34 best time done in early 2020.
