Moses Sets Trials Record in 200 Breast Semi-Final, Hyman Qualifies First in 200 Fly

Men's 200 Breast Semi-Final
Ed Moses set an Olympic Trials record in qualifying first for the 200 breast final. His 2:13.13 broke the 1992 mark of 2:13.50, set by Roque Santos, who like Moses represented Curl-Burke. As in prelims, Moses glided by on only 14 powerful strokes per lap.
Kyle Salyards qualified second in 2:13.62, Brendan Hansen, who gave Moses a run for his money in the first semi-final heat, qualified third in 2:13.94. Tom Wilkens qualified fourth in 2:14.57, giving him a chance to redeem his disappointing third place 400 IM swim. Jeff Hopwood and Jeff Hackler tied for fifth in 2:17.15, Scott Werner was seventh in 2:17.17 and Sean Quinn was eighth in 2:17.18.

Women's 200 Fly Semi-Final
Misty Hyman, 21 and swimming for Stanford, qualified first for the 200 fly final in 2:11.16, slower than her impressive 2:09.92 prelim time. 400 IM champion Kaitlin Sandeno rode a strong last 100 to challenge Hyman at the finish, qualifying second in 2:11.24. Shelly Ripple qualified third in 2:12.95, Emily Mason fourth in 2:12.96, Melissa Greene fifth in 2:13.14, Kristine Quance-Julian sixth in 2:13.92, Maddy Crippen seventh in 2:14.18 and Molly Freedman eighth in 2:14.25.
