Atta girl Natalie - way to not let Phelps grab all the headlines.
I don't know about y'all, but I'm pretty excited to see homegirl throw down and re-break it in Beijing.
Omaha, Neb. - Cal legend Natalie Coughlin set a world record of 59.03 in the preliminaries of the 100-meter backstroke at the 2008 U.S. Olympic Swimming Team Trials on Monday morning. The world record actually fell twice in prelims when Hayley McGregory first broke Coughlin's previous world record with a time of 59.15 in heat No. 15. Two minutes later, Coughlin reclaimed the crown. The record before Monday's prelims was set by Coughlin at 59.21 at the Missouri Grand Prix on Feb. 17.
