Claire Dickmann ended her competition at her first Olympic Trials on a great note. She swam her signature event, the 200 Fly, and moved up seven spots from 59th to 52nd. Claire’s comment to coach Jason after the race was "I think I can do that again". The smile on her face spoke volumes.
Claire and her coaches decided to not time trial the 800 free and instead time trial the 100 fly to prepare for the 200 fly. It worked!!!! Claire’s 1:03 in time trials prepared her perfectly for her 200 fly. WAY TO GO CLAIRE
