We captured all of the men’s world record race videos to help us channel our pre-U.S. Olympic Trials energy, but now let’s hear it for the women. As with the men, it’s unlikely that any of these will fall in Omaha, but then again, Katie Ledecky will be there and we know what happens virtually every time she dives into the pool. She’s a primary reason we’ve ranked the women’s 400m and 800m freestyle world marks as the top 2 on record death watch.
Missy Franklin‘s inspiring 200m backstroke performance at the 2012 Olympic Games is among the race videos seen below, and the star will be tackling that same event, along with the 100m back, 100m free and 200m freestyle in Omaha. Allison Schmitt and Dana Vollmer were on the record-setting 400m medley relay from London along with Franklin and will also be looking to notch Rio roster spots at CenturyLink over the 7-day Olympic Trials meet.
Keep your blood pressure in check as you re-live the spectacular moments in women’s swimming, which may even be topped by the end of 2016 by the enormous talent embedded all over the world.
