Following her third appearance at the Olympic Games last summer, Natalie Coughlin was disappointed. She raced only in the preliminaries of the 400 freestyle relay in London and decided that she could do better before retirement called her name. As a result, she started training with Nathan Adrian and Anthony Ervin under the direction of coach Dave Durden and shifted her focus to the sprint events. On the final night of the United States National Championships, Coughlin earned an individual berth to the World Championships, this time in the 50 freestyle.

I’m happy that Coughlin made it. She may be first at the 25 meter mark.
