Despite adding slightly to her time from this morning, Simone Manuel proved victorious once again in the women’s 100 free, dropping a 53.65 to seize the win. Leaving the field behind, Manuel proved herself as one of America’s top sprinters, despite being in an awkward phase of her training.

Recent Louisville grad, Mallory Comerford, partook in a tight race for second, as she and Margo Greer surged to a photo-finish, posting times of 54.11 and 54.18, respectively. Katie Ledecky was not to be excluded from the sprint game, turning in a 55.17 herself to secure fourth over Kylee Alons (55.68). Anika Apostalon added slightly to her time from this morning, coming home in a 55.72, enough to fend off Taylor Ruck’s 55.74. Allison Schmitt rounded out the heat with a 55.89 finals swim, boding well for the U.S.’s depth in sprinters.
