Mariya's prelim swim in the 200 yard IM
Mariya felt super strong in her 200 yard IM this morning. Her time wasn't her best, however, it was good enough to get her a second swim. Tonight she'll race in the consolation heat due to her 14th place finish from this morning's prelims. The top 16 swimmers swim in finals. Her 2:08.02 is slightly slower than her time at the US Short Course Nationals last December. Because of the tremendous success she had training this year with her dedication to gaining as much endurance as possible, she never got tired in this morning's race. She'll sprint the entire 200 tonight and should drop her time considerably.
