The depth of women’s back stroke in the USA is something to behold. Olympics trials next year will be a blood bath. Franklin, Bootsma, Pelton, Kathleen baker, Coughlin all capable of a 59sec swim… Almost 12months out I’ll put my money on Franklin and Baker,;Franklin is the proven one, and I believe great things are happening at Swim Mac team elite!

CAL swimmers seem to have had no difficulty in transitioning to LCM. Will Kazan be the coming out party for Murphy?

@aswimfan: I sure hope so! It seems like we’ve been waiting a long time for it.
