Canada’s Sydney Pickrem picked up her third win of the week in the 200 breaststroke. Her time of 2:25.52 was off her worldwide sixth-ranked 2:22.63, but was still enough for the win in Clovis.

Pickrem held the lead throughout the race, but was heavily challenged by Mexico’s Melissa Rodriguez in 2:25.54. Rodriguez was narrowly out-splitting Pickrem on the back half, but ran out of room to run her down. Her teammate Esther Gonzalez Medina was third in 2:29.44.

Breeja Larson put up the fourth-place time of 2:30.78. Abigail Herscu (2:33.97), Mackenzie Duarte (2:35.21), Erika Seltenreich-Hodgson (2:35.46) and Hillary Metcalfe (2:35.73) rounded out the heat.
