On top of the good races to watch tonight, we’ll also see the Americans competing to see whose the fastest between the A-final, B-final, and finals at U.S. Nationals. The fastest 2 will qualify for 2019 Worlds in individual events.

World Record holder Lilly King headlines the women’s 100 breast, while Andrew Wilson and Michael Andrew will battle international stars Yasuhiro Koseki (JPN) and Wang Lizhuo (CHN) on the men’s side. Katie Ledecky leads the 200 free, with teammate Allison Schmitt and young stars Taylor Ruck (CAN) and Rikako Ikee (JPN) also in the mix. Andrew Seliskar, who had a breakthrough at U.S. Nationals and surprised many swim fans with his win in the 200 free, is the top seed in that race. Japan’s Yui Ohashi is the heavy favorite for the women’s 400 IM victory, while World Champion Chase Kalisz battles Japanese Olympic champion Kosuke Hagino in the men’s race.
