How Fast Will Simone Manuel Swim at the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials?


Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.comOlympic swimming star Simone Manuel delivered at the recent San Antonio Pro Swim, sweeping the 50m and 100m free:

  • 50m free – 24.70
  • 100m free – 54.62

Simone said she wasn’t happy with her races, saying “there were goal times I didn’t hit.” However she felt there were positives she could takeaway from the competition.  Considering the masks, no fans, and that she hasn’t raced during COVID, she was satisfied with her performance overall.

U.S. Olympic Trials PREDICTIONS!

Simone sweeps the 50m and 100m free at the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials. She’s not messing around. This is a full rest to test her flat-out speed, and she will go faster in Tokyo.  At U.S. Trials  I see a 24.2 50m free and a 52.4 100m free. I think she swims the 200 free as well, dropping a 1:56.8 to make the 4×200 free relay.

Simone – 2019 World Championship Results

  • 50m Free – Gold – 24.05
  • 100m Free – Gold – 52.04

I’m backing off my predictions pre-worlds for the U.S. Olympic Trials.  See what I predicted for Simone well before the pandemic hit:

  • 50m Free – 23.89
  • 100m Free – 51.9

But who cares what I think!  What do you think? Give me your best expert swimming analysis.
