Novelline was back in action in the next event, the women’s 100 back. She clocked a 1:02.95 to get her hand on the wall first. The swim was also just off Novelline’s personal best of 1:02.27, which is from May of this year.

17-year-old Nina Mollin took the women’s 400 IM in 4:49.82, using an excellent breaststroke leg to take the lead in the A final. Mollin’s swim marked a huge best time, coming in well under her previous best of 4:54.18.
