Olympic Swimming Results, Pac-12 Edition: Caitlin Leverenz Gets Bronze In 200 Meter IM


The Pac-12 action is never-ending from the Olympics, isn't it? Here are the races involving Pac-12 swimmers today.

Women's 200 IM final

This was the most crowded Pac-12 final around this week, as three Pac-12 swimmers Caitlin Leverenz (Cal, USA), Ariana Kukors (Washington, USA) and Katinka Hosszu (USC, Hungary). Leverenz swam a great breaststroke leg that briefly gave her the lead at the final turn, and she held on to win bronze, the only medal on the day for the Pac-12.

China's Shiwen Ye was the favorite going into this race, but she wasn't quite as dominant in her race as she was last time. She still won over Alicia Coutts as both managed to outscoot Leverenz at the end. Kukors was fifth, Hosszu eighth.

Men's 100 meter freestyle

Nathan Adrian didn't have the easiest time in the Olympic trials, but he's had a pretty strong Olympics up to this point. His 100 split in the 400 free relay put the United States in prime position to win (although they ended up with silver), and then he swam a great heat time of 48.19 seconds to finish in first. He then won his semifinal heat, finishing with the second fastest time behind James Magnussen of Australia.

Women's 200 meter butterfly

Hosszu posted a time of 2:07.75 to finish with the 4th best time overall in the heats, but finished in the dreaded nine spot to just miss the final.

Here are the video highlights of the heats and the semifinals and finals.
