When talking about her recent stretch of training at the Olympic Training Center, she talks about doing a 39-inch box jump, which is her new personal best.

She also indicated that she’s probably got two meets coming up after Mesa, but wasn’t sure about where the second one would be. She didn’t mention either the Charlotte, Indianapolis or Santa Clara Pro Swim Series meets, which will be the last three stops of this year’s series.
