Alexandra Wenk raced her way to an Olympic berth with a 57.70 in the women’s 100-meter fly at the 2016 German Nationals.  That swim cleared the 58.35 German Olympic selection time, and moved her to 13th in the world rankings.

Additionally, her time broke her own German record of 57.76 set earlier today.

Aliena Schmidtke hit the wall second in a time of 58.57, just off the German selection time, while Franziska Hentke took third overall in 58.91.
