Every athlete has a different strategy when it comes to the individual medley events. For Madisyn Cox, she strives to go out long and smooth on the fly and then pick up the tempo on the backstroke. Cox always ends the race by bringing it home on the freestyle, she mentioned.

The fact that every athlete has different strengths in the individual medley is exactly why she loves the race.

Overall, Cox gave herself a B for the 2019 Phillips 66 US National Championships because she doesn’t want to become complacent and feels she has a lot of stuff to work on in the next year as she looks ahead to the 2020 Olympic Trials.
