How about that Misty Hyman!

   The biggest upset to me at the Olympic Trials was when Misty Hyman
missed a spot on the 100 fly team by 3 hundredths to Amy Van***n. I
predicted that she would improve alot between now and the Olympics.
Well, I was right in a way. She posted a time in the finals of the 200
fly that would have won the US Trials. 2:11.3. The amazing thing is
that she does that dolphining thing in the 200 fly also. To me that is
incredible. I can't imagine how much oxygen debt that would build for a
grueling race like that. She also posted a time of 1:00.10 in the 100
fly. I wouldn't imagine she's tapered either. Right now, she is the
best at underwater dolphining in the world among women, and perhaps
among anyone. She's going to get alot faster. Watch in August. I bet
she posts a time that would have won a medal at the Olympics. Just like
Quance did in 92.

Yeah, there always seems to be a woman at the US Trials who doesn't
make the team (narrowly) and then preforms exceptionally well not only
later in the season, but years to come.  In 1988 there was Summer
Sanders (3rd by a hair in the 200 IM), 1992--Quance, and now Hyman in
1996.  I actually thought Shelly Ripple would be 1996's, but she is
still very young.

I don't know about Shelly Ripple...but I do think little Jenny
Parmenter and Jody Hillock could make waves in their respective events.
Keep your eyes on Kristy Kowal too. I predict that really really soon,
the US will have more depth in women's ***stroke than we ever have
before.
