Yana, Amanda Go 1-2 in Women’s 200m IM Semis

By Phillip Whitten

ATHENS, August 16. THREE medals. Four contenders.

That's what the women's 200 IM will boil down to tomorrow night. At least that's what we can glean is likely from tonight's semifinals in the event.

Actually, it may become a five-woman race as Aussie rookie Lara Carroll put herself in the mix with a 2:13.80.

Yana — Klochkova, that is — led the semis at 2:13.30 as she tries to become the first woman to win both IM events in consecutive Olympic Games.

But it won't be easy, as precisely half a second separates the top five young women.

Beard is second at 2:13.51, followed by Katie Hoff at 2:13.60 and backstroke surprise-packet Kirsty Coventry at 2:13.68.
