Zhu, of AGUA, wound up taking second overall in 2:30.36, while Aquazot Casey Mims earned third in 2:30.52.

Wilton Y's Christian Higgins, who also finaled at senior nationals, set a meet record during prelims with a 2:14.35 in the men's 200 breast.

August 10, 2010 So does that mean Toskey and Nuerath who also swam a 2:09 in the 2fly at Nat.'s will go to Pan Pac jr's?

August 10, 2010 Too bad Morozov didn't swim as fast at Nationals (did he even swim there?); his 49.0 this morning in the 100 free would have qualified him 3rd for finals!!

August 10, 2010 liquidassets,

Vlad Morozov was not at nationals because he is not a U.S. citizen. This year's nationals was restricted to American citizens only.

He is attempting to swim fast this summer to prove to the US government that he should be considered for a speedy citizenship process. He explained this on a recent episode of "The Morning Swim Show," which can be accessed through the link below:

August 10, 2010 Oh right Jeff; I had seen that but forgot. I'm glad he got to swim at Juniors, although I assume he won't prevent any citizens from make Junior team. I remember some years they allowed foreign nationals but only in B finals. Sounds like he's on his way to proving his point...
