Moore reaches B final in Lima
Madelyn Moore has qualified for tonight’s women’s 50 metres freestyle B final at the Videna Acquatic Centre at the Pan American Games.
Moore finished fifth in heat four of the 50 free, which she considers her strongest event, in a time of 26.79sec.
Despite ensuring she will have a second swim in her event, Moore said she was not happy with her time, which was the fifteenth fastest overall out of 29 competitors.
“It felt like a good swim but the time didn’t show it,” Moore said. “I made it back to the finals, so hopefully I can improve my time.
“You always feel like you did everything you meant to do but then you look back think, ‘I didn’t do this’.
“I’m a little disappointed and I will be until probably after the cool down.”
Moore, who attends the University of Northern Colorado, said he was hoping to end her season on a high note in the B final.
“I’ll do my race prep the same as I normally do and not try and psyche myself out, which is what I do sometimes. I’ll stay relaxed and see what happens.
“I’m really happy that I have the opportunity to swim in the B final.
“I’m coming to the end of a really long season; I’ll have a two-week break and then I’ll be back to it.”
Meanwhile, Jesse Washington did not reach the B final in the men’s 50 freestyle.
He came eighth in heat four of his event in 23.92. He declined to comment.
