According to FINA’s 2021 Point Scoring scale, Katie Ledecky’s 800 free (8:13.64) was the #1 swim of the meet. In her last event of the weekend, Ledecky split 4:06/4:07 to win the event by 12 seconds over Leah Smith and take 3.3 seconds off her previous world-leading time for the 2020-21 swim season. Ledecky also had the #2, #4 and #10 performances with the 1500, 200, and 400 freestyles, respectively. She won those three events as well, beating Ashley Twichell (16:04.29) in the 1500 on Wednesday, Leah Smith (4:07.41) in the 400 on Thursday, and Katie McLaughlin (1:57.48) in the 200 on Friday.

Regan Smith’s prelims swim in the 100 back scored the next-highest with FINA. Smith’s 59.39 was her best performance this year and her 19th-fastest lifetime 100 back. Olivia Smoliga, who edged Smith (59.50) in the final by .01 with 59.49, logged the 6th highest-ranking swim of the meet.

Kathleen Baker swam two times that made the top-ten list: her 200 back (2:07.54), in which she beat Smith (2:08.80) by 1.26 seconds, and her 100 back (59.57) from finals when she touched just behind Smoliga and Smith.

Annie Lazor earned her spot on the top-ten list with her 200 breast win of 2:23.91, the 9th-fastest in the world so far this year.

Finally, Ryan Murphy’s 53.56 in the final of the 100 back was the top male performance. Murphy has been faster this year – he went 53.55 in January – so his world ranking (#8 so far this season) didn’t change.
