Geer swam a 24.90 to out-duel Zhang Yufei of China (24.99). Geer swam a 24.89 in the quarters, 24.91 in the semis and finished her third swim with a time in between both of those.
Zhang improved on her 25.21 in the quarters and 25.25 in the semis to make the final a little more interesting with her first sub-25 swim of the meet.
