ďIt felt like a good swim but the time didnít show it,Ē Moore said. ďI made it back to the finals, so hopefully I can improve my time.
ďYou always feel like you did everything you meant to do but then you look back think, ĎI didnít do thisí.
ďIím a little disappointed and I will be until probably after the cool down.Ē
Moore, who attends the University of Northern Colorado, said he was hoping to end her season on a high note in the B final.
ďIíll do my race prep the same as I normally do and not try and psyche myself out, which is what I do sometimes. Iíll stay relaxed and see what happens.
ďIím really happy that I have the opportunity to swim in the B final.
ďIím coming to the end of a really long season; Iíll have a two-week break and then Iíll be back to it.Ē
