GO BEARS!

In Women's 100 Fly semi, we have Natalie Coughlin in one semi and Dana Vollmer in another.

In Women's 400 IM Final, Cal would be represented by Caitlin Leverenz (who had the 2nd best time in the prelim today).

No Cal Bears made it to the 400 IM Final (billed as the showdown between Michael Phelps and Ryan Lotche) nor the 400 Free Final and 100 Breast Semifinal tonight. Adam Hinshaw and Nolan Koon both just missed out on, being the reserves of 400 IM and 100 Breast, respectively.
