Coming off his toughest year’s training since 2008, it will be very interesting to see what times he puts up and how they rate alongside those from Kazan. The same is true for the likes of Alison Schmitt, Kelsi Worrell, Katie Meili, Caitlin Leverenz, etc.
Added interest, as it’s also the qualifying event for the world junior championship.

Cielo was third, as far as I remember.

I wonder why this meet overlaps with World Champs. Couldn’t they just run it from 11 or 12 of August so that all top athletes were able to compete in both?

Correct, Eugene. Temporary brain cramp. Fix made.
