Backstroke leg and they were really tough to tell going into the breaststroke which is Sarah -- Strongest. Leg or her race but then Charlotte Meyer came right back and -- toe to toe with Sarah in that restaurants are heading -- that freestyle. Sarah didn't have them leave that maybe she thought she would. And Charlotte was right on going in that precise it was tough to tell right up until the very end it was very exciting the place is pretty much collapsing upon itself with the crowd noise. And that spectacular finish from Charlotte -- there right at the end. You know a good thing and it. This is not throws that's why everyone -- don't want you had two great competitors. Two young ladies who have exceptional futures in this sport. On display going to go to talent and good friends as well -- and you could see it in the celebration afterwards up.

In other there may have been a clear favorite but you knew that there was going to be some great stuff going on. Well the sad recognition of a hundred breaststroke here this was very much the favorite. Sarah half that we're looking out right here and from up from the start she did an amazing job you know in the morning she kind of I don't want -- took it easy but she played with a little bit to see how she was feeling clearly. She felt amazing she did such a good job getting in and out of the walls. So smooth and strong she gets through the middle part of the breaststroke sliding those hands. Through that middle part extending out for everything is always moving forward and she's she's just a joy to watch in the water I ended up going time. One double low point 05. So she just missed that goal that personal goal of hers and kind of what everybody wanted to see a 59. 99 but still a national record breaking her own private school national record.
