Katie Hoff was having a solid weekend in her return to major, national-level competition this weekend at the Mesa Grand Prix through the first two days. She made a couple of A-finals, had some season-best swims, and generally just competed.
And then the 200 IM happened. Her 2:12 in that race included a front-half that could have been Katie Hoff c. 2007, and she looked really impressive to win that race.
Hoff, in her interview, talks about what her plan is for the rest of the season, which meets she’ll attend, and mentions that after a successful weekend, she’s definitely planning on swimming at U.S. Nationals – which it sounds like might have been up in the air until now.
