The season of the finals for the USA begins with Erika Brown, then Abbey Weitzeil, then Natalie Hinds, before Manuel drops anchor.

Team USA coach Greg Meehan had many options in the finals, as the seasons ultimately made the decision of the coach.

Swimmers who are only relay swimmers at the meeting must swim at least once, either in the preliminary round or in the final. Natalie Hinds, Olivia Smoliga and Catie DeLoof were the only relay swimmers in the USA at this event and they all swam during the heats, along with Allison Schmitt, who was only a relay swimmer at this event but has an individual swim in the 200 free swim.

The 100 free individual qualifications were Weitzeil and Brown, and both were not in the preliminary round. In the preliminary round, Smoliga led with 54.06, followed by DeLoof with 53.42 and Schmitt with 54.04 ahead of Hinds with 52.28.

Meehan also had other options like Simone Manuel, the defending 100-free gold medalist. But she missed making the 100 Free or even the relay at the U.S. Olympic Trials, even though she later made the team into the 50 Free. Katie Ledecky was also an option, as was teen sensation Torri Huske, who also just missed out on this season of exams.

Ultimately, Meehan had to make what he thought was the best decision for the US, which means that Smoliga, Schmitt and DeLoof could all still win medals, but could not swim in the final.

Australia took first place in the event in the preliminary rounds. Australia swam in 3: 31.73, followed by the Netherlands (3: 33.51), Canada (3: 33.72), Great Britain (3: 34.03), the USA (3: 34.80), China (3:35:07), Denmark (3: 35.56) and Sweden (3: 35.93).

The preliminary team of the Dolphins, consisting of Mollie O’Callaghan, Meg Harris, Madison Wilson and Bronte Campbell, easily prevailed by almost two seconds for the top seed of the championship race with a performance of 3: 31.73.

The Aussies went into these games as overwhelming gold favorites, and their opening squad didn’t change that opinion. After O’Callaghan took the lead with a split of 53.08, Harris cracked a 52.73 mark, Wilson went 53.10, and Campbell ended the session with an anchor of 52.82. The line-up doesn’t get stronger until the morning when Emma McKeon and Cate Campbell join.

Canada has Kayla Sanchez, Maggie MacNeil, Rebecca Smith and Penny Oleksiak. MacNeil is replacing Taylor Ruck, who swam in the heats.

The US will try to advance to the finals and Simone Manuel could be the difference in the end.
