Sandeno Leads Qualifiers in 400m Free; Munz Fails to Make the Cut

By Phillip Whitten

LONG BEACH, Calif., July 8. THEY say that anything can happen at the US Olympic Trials and this morning, in the women’s 400m freestyle, that cliché was reaffirmed by reality.

Diana Munz – one of the co-favorites both here and for Athens – failed to qualify, missing the final by two-hundredths of a second?

And who was .02 ahead of Diana, barely sneaking into the final herself?

None other than defending Olympic champion, Brooke Bennett, who led through the halfway mark and was still second after 300 meters. Bennett finished in 4:12.41.

Kaitlin Sandeno was the top qualifier at 4:09.81, almost two seconds ahead of the rest of the field. The next seven qualifiers all finished within eight-tenths of a second of each other. Lindsay Benko qualified second, followed by Sara McLarty and Kalyn Keller.

Munz was not the only major casualty in the 400 free. Rachel Komisarz was tenth in 4:12.51, one-tenth behind Brooke Bennett. Alyssa Kiel, Hayley Peirsol, Elizabeth Hill, Emily Mason, Adrienne Binder and Jessica Foschi all failed to make the cut.

This evening’s final is wide open, though Sandeno definitely is the favorite.
