After nearly 20 years -in two stints- as head coach of Mission Viejo Nadadores, Mark Schubert has left the pool deck.
Schubert served on eight Olympic coaching staffs, won three NCAA team titles and was USA Swimming’s National Team Director from 2006 until 2010.
The kickboard tradition started in 1992 when the original owner of the board, Janet Evans, passed it on to then-freshman Jenny Thompson.
While she didn’t make it to the top of the podium, Ariarne Titmus still pulled off an impressive Commonwealth record of 8:13.83.
After qualifying second into the women’s 800 FR Olympic final, Katie Grimes has passed Janet Evans as the No. 2 US 15-16 performer all-time.
Titmus leads this season’s 400 free world rankings by 2.3 seconds over Ledecky. In SwimSwam’s Pick’ems contest, 51% predict Titmus will win and 48% Ledecky.
Joining world record holder Katie Ledkecky, 15-year-old Grimes will be making her way to Tokyo this summer after placing 2nd in the 800 freestyle.

Caeleb Dressel has a big night ahead of him in Omaha, with the 100 fly final scheduled just 41 minutes before his 50 free semi.
It will be a busy session for Katie Ledecky tonight, as she’ll have both the women’s 200 free final and the 1500 free final just over an hour apart.
Grimes will have the opportunity to move herself up in the rankings even further tomorrow night.
Katie Ledecky “only” needs to win two individual events in Tokyo to move to #2 all-time in individual golds.
The men’s 400 and 1500 freestyle are two of the events with the longest Olympic gold medal draught for the United States.
