Who will prevail as Manuel and Weitzeil try to make their 2nd Olympic team while Curzan, Huske, and Walsh want to take the spots for themselves?
From June 2019 to November 2020, teens Claire Curzan and Torri Huske rocketed to the top of the women’s 100 fly US ranks, threatening veteran Kelsi Dahlia.
Katie Ledecky is almost certainly going to win this, but there is a largely familiar cast of characters vying for the second individual spot.
Fourth in the women’s 200 IM in 2016, Madisyn Cox appears to be hitting her peak as we head into the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials.
While reigning Olympic champion Simone Manuel is favorited to win in Omaha, a tight field of veterans and age-groupers is looking to challenge her.
With only weeks to go until the Olympics, defending world champion Maggie MacNeil posted the second-fastest swim this year in the 100 fly.
The swim marked an improvement of 2.53 seconds, and brought Dixon from just outside the Wave I cut of 2:14.59, to under the Wave II cut of 2:12.56.
Curzan took down her 3rd NAG of the meet and has now gotten within a second of Penny Oleksiak’s 52.70 world junior record.
