A question of which time trial was the best. I tend to lean slightly towards the 400m. Is that 8 sub 4 mins now?
Actually,what about an argument for the 200m given that it was the one time she really had to dig deep to win, so much so, that she almost threw up. It was certainly her gutsiest swim.

200 free is definitely her gutsiest win, but time-wise, the quality of 400 and 800 far exceed her 200.
