2022 FINA World Cup – Indianapolis: Day 3 Prelims Stay Recap


2022 FINA WORLD CUP – INDIANAPOLIS

DAY THREE PRELIMS HEAT SHEET

The final day of the 2022 FINA World Cup is here. Today features the men’s 400 IM, women’s 100 fly, men’s 50 fly, women’s 200 back, men’s 100 back, women’s 50 breast, men’s 200 breast, women’s 100 free, men’s 200 free, women’s 200 IM, and women’s 800 free.

There’s no Katie Ledecky this morning, as she’s only racing in the 800 free, which is a timed finals event and she’ll be racing in the fast heat with finals. Summer McIntosh and Katie Grimes will also be in the fast heat tonight, setting up what should be a great race between some of the best and brightest in women’s freestyle right now.

Grimes will also be swimming the 200 back this morning, while McIntosh is set to swim the 100 free as well.

After setting a World Junior Record and winning the women’s 100 back yesterday, American 17-year-old Bella Sims is entered in the women’s 200 back and 200 IM this morning. Keep an eye on her in the 200 IM, as she isn’t seeded very high, but we already know she’s a very good IM’er.

Siobhan Haughey, the 200 free champion last night, is the top seed in the women’s 100 free this morning. Haughey will have a battle on her hands, as 50 free triple crown winner Katarzyna Wasick is in the field, along with Madi Wilson, Abbey Weitzeil, and Summer McIntosh.

We get another great men’s breaststroke race today, this time in the 200 breast. There’s no Cody Miller in this field, but Nic Fink, Nicolo Martinenghi, Caio Pumputis, and Reece Whitley are still set to compete.
