I tend to agree with both of you. I’ve been debating what to tell my top sprinter who will be the number 1 seed by far in her events and her slowest time from this year would still get her 2nd in prelims. I don’t see any scenario where she would swim too slow to make finals but as I think about it more I think it’s better to just have her swim fast so we can see if there are things to be improved for finals.

My 500 swimmer I am still unsure about. You don’t think swimming a 500 all out on back to back days is going to hurt her a little at finals? Doc, you would still have a distance swimmer go all out at prelims if she was a near lock for top 8?
