In the comment section of the Alex Walsh interview from last week, it was a very unpopular take to say she has a good chance of a sweep at NCAAs. As someone who dared to express that outrageous opinion last week it feels good to hear Braden saying basically the same thing I did – Alex’s overall talent will win out over the 200 fly event specialists. Coleman’s take that she will be more tired at that point than most of the other swimmers did give me pause, though. It will be fun to see how it plays out!

Personally I think she will get 57 points and lose to olivia Carter. Regan will go for the 200 back and be a bit tired for the 200 fly.

My issue with this is referring to “200 Fly specialists.” Regan Smith isn’t a 200 Fly specialist. She swims a number of events very well. Suggesting Alex is a better pure swimming talent and will therefore win seems like a stretch. Yes Regan swims the 200 Back prior to the 200 Fly. That’s the best reason Alex will have a shot. But my money is on Regan to be the first swimmer to win both of those events. Likely in American Record time in each.
