Update of NSCA Junior Swimming National Champs; Day 3

Day 3 at Junior Nationals in Orlando showcased some of the top sprinters in the meet in the 50 meter fly and 50 meter breaststroke races.  One third of the evening's finalists in these events competed in blueseventy!
Athletes also competed in the fan's favorite - the 200 meter freestyle.   Nearly half of the races were swum in blueseventy including an exciting 1st, 2nd, and 3rd finish on the women’s side with a World Championships Trials qualifying whilst the 1st and 3rd place athletes on the men’s side both qualified for World Champs Trials in the blueseventy nero.
The final individual event of the evening was the 400 IM where the 4th and 5th place finishers both qualified for World Champs on the women’s side in blueseventy and the winner of the mens 400 IM also qualified for the Trials in a nero.

Overall stats - about 1/3 of athletes last night competed in the blueseventy nero swimskin.
For blueseventy, the high point of evening was the 1st, 2nd,and 3rd finish in the Women's 200 Freestyle; all qualifying for World Champs!
