The 3rd day of the PV Long Course Championships featured the 200 fly, 100 back, and 400 free. 15-year-old Torri Huske swam a 2:15.61 200 fly, dropping 2.38 seconds from her previous best time of 2:17.99. Probably the most incredible thing about her race is that she split 35.00 on her last 3 50’s. Huske went out in 30.61, then posted 35.00 for the next 3 50’s.

15-year-old Paige McKenna won the women’s 400 free, posting a 4:17.59.  That time marked McKenna’s first sub-4:20 performance ever, and marked a nearly 6 second time drop fro her previous best of 4:23.07. McKenna took the race out aggressively, hitting the 200 mark at 2:05.39 (1:01.37/1:04.02). She then followed it up with a 1:06.11 on the 3rd 100 and 1:06.09 on the 4th 100. 13-year-old Erin Gemmell, the daughter of Bruce Gemmell, came in 3rd in the 400 free after winning the 200 the day before. Gemmell posted a 4:21.88, dropping 6.46 seconds from her previous best time of 4:28.34. Gemmell nearly even-split the race, posting a 2:10.19 on the first 200, and 2:11.69 on the 2nd 200.

Hugh Robey, 18, took the men’s 200 fly with a 2:03.35. Robey was out fast, touching the 100 wall in 57.18 (27.32/29.86), but fell off a bit coming home, posting a 1:06.17 (32.87/33.30) on the last 100. That time comes in under his previous best time of 2:04.09. Robey was almost run down by runner-up Alex Colson, 17, who finished in 2:03.73. Robey was out in 58.87 (27.50/31.37), and back in 1:04.86 (32.93/31.93).

Other Day 3 Event Winners:

  • Women’s 100 Back: Katie Mack – 1:04.22
  • Men’s 100 Back: Ryan Baker – 57.43
  • Men’s 400 Free: Stuart Pliuskaitis – 4:05.89

“Wow consistent 35.00s is pretty awesome.”

Shouldn’t omit sig figs, doncha know.


Didn’t know my old chemistry teacher is on swim swam.


Who cares man


Torri Huske also goes 22.39 in her 50 free and a 52 in her 100 fly. She’s absolutely one to watch for the future


This is insane. I know Camille Adams had a 200 fly where she went 32.47, 32.50, and 32.48 in some order (I think at the 2014 Pan Pacs) but I’ve never seen this happen.

Anyone know what the largest times database would be that includes splits? Might try to write up a little program that can parse that to see how often this has happened. The time search on USA Swimming does not seem to include splits.


Dahlia went 29,33,33,33 at Columbus for 2:09.


Sure, that’s common enough. I’m talking about times a swimmer has had the exact same split on each of the last three 50s of a 200. 33.06/33.57/33.65 doesn’t quite fit the bill. is the largest, by far, that includes splits.
