Then I’ll say again that Natalie Coughlin will be a big contender for the 100back individual spot; 59.20 will be enough quite comfortably

Yes!! Haha, told you so!! So happy for Natalie. She should have never given up bkstroke; stay with your strengths

100 fly next please

100fly overlaps with 100back on the Olympic schedule; I think 100free/100back are the primary events for Olympics trials especially for medly and 400fr relay; 50free will be at the end of the schedule and more of a fun event
