Katie Meili was on fire this morning with the best time (1:07.16) and only gained a tenth en route to a big win over a strong field. Both her prelims and finals swims were within the top 10 in the world. Her time of 1:07.26 topped Jamaican record-holder Alia Atkinson(1:08.01) and American stalwart Breeja Larson (1:08.60). SwimMac’s Micah Lawrencefinished up in fourth (1:08.93), and these four ladies were the only swimmers to dip below the 1:10 barrier.
