IRVINE, California, August 7. AFTER scratching the first two finals she qualified for at Nationals, Elizabeth Beisel entered as the top seed in the 200 back only to slip off the pads on the start. She ended up sixth in a time of 2:12.37, whereas her prelims swim would have placed her second. Beisel spoke of how she managed to quickly shake off any disappointment and how she thinks she handled the mess-up mid-race. She also spoke of her expectations for her 400 IM tomorrow, where she enters as the big favorite.
