    This whole Worlds selection off finals is going to be even more interesting with the 87% chance of rain tonight.

    This won’t affect the milers, as Jaeger and McBroome appear to be safe after times from prelims.

    Cierra will have to drop 2 more seconds, but with much worse weather conditions predicted than what the prelim 800 swimmers faced.

    And if Pelton really did save her taper for this meet, Bootsma still has the upper hand because of the predicted rain/ wind for tonight’s final.
