Men’s 200 Free:
Top 8 are all under 1:43. Top 16 are all under 1:43.51. If Vegas had odds, I’m not quite sure how they would even figure this out.
Women’s 100 Breast:
Is Alia Atkinson too strong for Ruta Meilutyte to overcome?
Natalie Coughlin swam the 50 Breast? 31.16 isn’t too shabby!
Men’s 100 Back:
Matt Grevers and Eugene Godsoe both in Top 8. Lots of great youth in this event including Israel’s David Gamburg, Australia’s Mitch Larkin, and Germany’s Christian Diener.
Women’s 2 Fly:
The Iron Lady drops an easy 2:02 in her first event of the morning. Sarah Sjostrom ends up 19th — will probably want to stick to sprinting.
Men’s 100 Breast:
Adam Peaty, the human water bug, continues to crush dreams, ripping a 57.0. Cody Miller and Brad Craig both in Top 8. Cameron van der Burgh just sneaks into Consols at 13th place.
Women’s 100 Back:
A dominant performance (and CR) for Katinka Hosszu. She nearly broke the WR a couple months ago — less than half a second off this morning. Good swims by the young American girls Kathleen Baker and Amy Bilquist.
Men’s 100 Fly:
Kosuke Hagino of Japan the lone man under 50 seconds. But, Lochte and Shields are not too far behind. The Top 15 guys all broke 51.
Women’s 400 IM:
The Iron Lady shoots and scores a prelims hat trick. Utter destruction by over 5 seconds. This is why she is FINA Female Swimmer of the Year.
Men’s 400 Free Relay:
America looks to be in good shape here, not swimming our entire lineup while still placing 4th. Cielo crushed a 45.53. Only dude under 46.
Women’s 800 Free Relay:
America again sitting pretty. No Ledecky, no Missy. Craziest thing of the morning, though? China’s Yuhan Qiu leading off with a 1:53.45 — is not entered in the 200 Free.
