Heat sheets are now available for the last session of AT&T Winter Nationals, which begins at 4:50 p.m. ET in Atlanta. Kevin Cordes will go for his second win of the meet in the men’s 200 breast, but fellow Olympians Amanda Weir and Melanie Margalis withdrew from finals.
After winning the 50 free Thursday and finishing second in the 200 free Friday, Weir scratched the 100 free final to rest up for next week’s Short Course World Championships, for which she departs Sunday, and Margalis is also done for the meet after winning National titles in the 200 IM, 200 free and 100 breast. Margalis had qualified for “A” finals in both the 200 back and 200 breast.
16-year-old Isabel Ivey now assumes the top seed in the women’s 100 free final after finishing second to Margalis in the 200 free Friday.
Lindsey Clary and Brooke Zeiger will battle it out for a third time in the 1650 after Clary edged Zeiger in the 500 free and Zeiger took down Clary in the 400 IM. On the men’s side, Indiana’s Vini Lanza is favored to add the 200 fly title to the 200 IM, which he won Thursday night.
