US Trials day 8: Torres 4th and out in 24.82

0

The 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials have come to a close, Jessica Hardy and Kara Lynn Joyce took the women’s 50 freestyle Olympic tickets in 24.50 and 24.73, while Andrew Gemmell and Connor Jaeger took the men’s 1500 freestyle seats in 14:52.19 and 14:52.51. USA Swimming named its London 2012 Olympic team roster shortly afterwards, Missy Franklin participating in 6 events while Ryan Lochte and Michael Phelps take 5 each, including internal head-to-head duels in the 200 and 400 IM.

“Missing it by less than a tenth of a second is tough,” Torres said. “Going to the Olympic trials against girls half my age, it’s OK. I mean, I’m used to winning but that wasn’t the goal here. The goal was trying to make it. I didn’t quite do it.” – SwimNews
