Amanda Kendall has been on a resurgence since moving to Indiana for post grad. Kendall swam a 26.07 to win the 50 butterfly shootout ahead of China’s Zhang Yufei (26.21). Kendall had a good career at LSU where she was an All-American. She has not made a major team since the 2011 Pan American Games. USA Swimming has not had a solid second 100 butterflyer after Kelsi Worrell. Kendall could fill that void as a major comeback story for USA swimming.
