GREENSBORO- Stanford sprint stars Simone Manuel and Lia Neal stick together on campus, in practice and apparently in NCAA finals. Tonight Simone Manuel broke the American record in the 100 free with a 46.09 and brought the audience to their feet. Lia Neal looked to be in fourth under the flags but willed her way to the wall to take second with a 47.13.

Here the good friends and Stanford teammates chat with Swimming World about pushing through the burn, feeling the energy the fans brought to every session, and their outstanding relay showings this weekend.
