Cammile Adams won the women’s 200-meter fly at the Arena Pro Swim Series Mesa, then explained some of the stroke changes she’s been making recently.
Adams also talked about having the entire SwimMAC group back together after they went their separate ways for a bit.
Original report on 200 fly:
The early favorite looked to be Iron Lady Katinka Hosszu after this morning, but a pair of Pan Pacific Championship teammates wound up winning the 200-meter fly at the Arena Pro Swim Series Mesa.
Cammile Adams of SwimMAC backhalfed her way past Mission Viejo’s Katie McLaughlin to touch her out 2:08.80 to 2:08.86. Adams has been faster this year with a sixth-ranked time of 2:07.61 from the BHP Super Series. McLaughlin, meanwhile, moved into the top 20 in the world with her swim.
Cammile Adams, 200 fly:
“I’ve actually been trying to work on my first 100 speed, so I am happy I was doing well on the first half. I’ve been trying to stay more in tune with my races. We’ve been doing a lot of overtraining, so I wasn’t 100 percent sure how I would go. I’m definitely pleased with it.”
Hosszu wound up dropping back to third with a time of 2:11.83 to finish in the money, while Stanford’s Maya DiRado snared fourth in 2:11.91.
California’s Caitlin Leverenz (2:11.93), Louisville’s Kelsi Worrell (2:12.42) and Gator’s Elizabeth Beisel (2:15.22) finished fifth through seventh with Hannah Saiz falling well back in eighth with a 2:16.66.
