La brasseuse King Size dézingue l’opposition et lui file une longueur de corps dans la vue en l’espace de vingt-cinq secondes.
Stanford’s Ella Eastin is looking for a perfect 3-for-3 in both NCAA titles and American Records here. She’ll be swimming in the 200 fly towards the end of the session.
Stanford looks like the favorite, but the interesting strategy to watch Saturday will be where teams use their star sprinters – both Simone Manuel and Abbey Weitzeil could anchor or lead off. And where they swim just might be the difference-maker if the race gets tight.
Louisville’s Mallory Comerford will go up against Stanford’s Simone Manuel and Michigan’s Siobhan Haughey in the 200 free.
In a tight race where the top three teams all finished under the NCAA and American records, Stanford emerged victorious, winning the 200 medley relay in 1:33.11 over Cal and Indiana.
Indiana maintained their lead through fly by over half a second, but it was all over once Manuel hit the water.
