Recap of Day 7
Katie Ledecky finished 1st in the finals of the women’s 800m free, being on world record pace for much of the race until she fell off of it towards the end. All counted, Ledecky qualified for 4 events in Rio – 200 free, 400 free, 800 free, and 4 × 200 free relay.
Jack Conger placed 4th in the finals of the men’s 100m butterfly, missing the #2 spot needed to qualify for Rio in the event by 0.06 seconds (i.e., 51.20 vs 51.26 seconds). All told, Conger made the Rio Olympic team in the 4 x 200 free relay, but barely, barely missed it in 3 events (200 free, 200 fly, 100 fly).
Congratulations to both Katie Ledecky and Jack Conger for making the 2016 U.S. Olympic team in Rio de Janeiro. The PVS community is proud of you and will be cheering you all on!
