Ok, but this meet is really a glorified dual meet, very few swimmers get to actually swim from a few 6 person(scoring) teams I think? I would have been 38th... (-;
Now 3rd in an actual trials meet, or even top 10 overall, that would be something. Like Paula's 11 overall at Kona...
I'm not sure what you mean about people scoring? There's a bonus scoring event with the national team that's just placed on the results, but anyone from any team can qualify for the meet and swim at the meet. (Omega Timing Results)
Katie would have been 8th in the men's 1500m free at 2016 trials (http://omegatiming.com/...000502FFFFFFFFFFFF02) and I bet had she been in the race would have been at least 7th.
Crazy bit is she has no suit sponsor yet, and has been spotted in at least 2 different manufacturer's kits so far (Speedo and TYR)
