The efficiency from Canny on Friday evening showcases her versatility, which many weren’t conscious of earlier than the beginning of the season. Final 12 months, Canny centered on the 100 and 200 freestyles along with the 200 IM. She positioned nineteenth within the 200 IM (1:56.10) at NCAAs, whereas she positioned 14th within the 100 freestyle (48.10) and third within the 200 freestyle (1:42.50).
Transferring into championship season, her occasion selections aren’t anyplace close to as apparent as they have been final 12 months. After she posted a nation-leading 4:36.26 500 freestyle (on the time) to open the meet on Wednesday, it appeared she discovered a greater day one occasion choice to think about in lieu of the 200 IM. Now, one other resolution will have to be made relating to her best choice for day three of NCAAs. After scoring within the 100 freestyle final 12 months (14th in a 48.10), will the 200 breaststroke present a greater scoring alternative?
Wanting again ultimately 12 months, it took a time of 47.39 to make the ‘A’ remaining of the 100 freestyle and 47.99 to make the ‘B’ remaining on the NCAA Championships. Conversely, it took a time of two:07.32 to make the ‘A’ remaining of the 200 breaststroke and a 2:08.30 to make the ‘B’ remaining. Provided that the 200 breaststroke is a comparatively new occasion for Canny, it seems it might be a robust occasion consideration for the championship meets on the finish of the season. Her greatest time from Friday would put her simply 0.19 exterior of constructing it again for a second swim ultimately 12 months’s NCAA Championships, and it was solely the second time she ever raced the occasion.
