Alex Walsh manhandled the competition in the women’s 100 back to earn top honors for the States, clocking in at 2:08.30 to come dangerously close to the previous Pan American record of 2:08.22 set by Hilary Caldwell. One of America’s most consistent performers, Walsh is no stranger to the limelight despite her young age. Winning Junior Nationals just four years ago (a meet where Regan Smith placed seventh), Walsh has evaded the dreaded plateau to continue contributing to America’s repertoire in international competition.

Her compatriot, Isabelle Stadden, locked down the silver for the U.S., crashing the pads with a 2:08.39 while gaining a healthy advantage over Canada’s Mackenzie Glover (2:10.96). Fernanda De Goeij of Brazil chased the bronze, ultimately falling just short with a time of 2:11.95. Andres Berrino rounded out the top five with an impressive 2:12.71 of her own, proceeded by Madison Broad (2:12.82) of Canada and Florencia Perotti (2:16.75) of Argentina. Krystal Garzon of the Dominican put her country on the radar with a 2:17.09 to end the event.

    You wrote 100 Bk instead of 200 bk in the first sentence.
