GOLD COAST, Australia, August 21.

USA’s Cammile Adams clipped Japan’s Natsumi Hoshi at the wall, 2:06.61 to 2:06.68 in a huge victory for the American.  Hoshi is the world leader this year with a 2:05.98 to her credit from Japanese Nationals, and Adams was able to improve upon her 2:07.12 from U.S. Nationals to capture the title.

That’s the first U.S. win in the event since Summer Sanders topped the 200 fly with a 2:09.84 back in 1991.  Her time still would have placed her seventh this year.

USA’s Katie McLaughin lowered her own World Junior Record of 2:08.02 from prelims with a third-place 2:07.08 to vault to eighth in the world rankings as well.  The time also moved her back ahead of Maya DiRado for the second spot on the U.S. roster at the 2015 World Championships.

Japan’s Miyu Nakano (2:08.54), Canada’s Audrey Lacroix (2:08.81), Canada’s Katerine Savard (2:09.42), Australia’s Madeline Groves (2:10.15) and Venezuela’s Andreina Pinto (2:13.28) also competed in the championship finale.

    How did more than one American get to swim in the B final?

  2. Duncan

    DiRado was not 3rd American in prelims. Could have been a big issue re American World Champs team if McLaughlin hadn’t had such a great final.
