Taylor McKeon broke into the 1:06 zone for silver and her first ticket to the Rio 2016 Olympic Games a few days ago. Today she blew the 200m field away with a 1:07.94 first half of the 200m on her way to victory in 2:21.45, the closest any Dolphin has come to the pioneering 2:20.54 standard that stood as a world record to Leisel Jones in 2006 barring Jones herself; Cameron McEvoy leads the way to the dash final.
