Day 8 Events:
Women's 50m Free - Final
Men's 1500m Free - Final
Last day of the 2012 US Olympic Swimming Trials see the last two events. While no Cal Bears is competing in the Men's 1500 Free, two former Cal Bears are in contention for the Women's 50 Free.
Jessica Hardy, who won the Women's 100 Free to be a first time Olympian, got the top time and Madison Kennedy had the 4th best time.
Madison Kennedy will attempt to be the 7th Cal Bears to make it to the US Swimming team. We will have a recap of all the Cal Bears who have made the team or came agonizingly close. With the announcement that Michael Phelps has decided to drop 200 Free from his program, I guess the hope that Tom Shields getting on the team with Phelps dropping 100 Fly has officially been dashed (this scenario would also require Ryan Lochte to pass).
