Kansas swimmers gain experience


— Kansas University swimmers past, present and future gained valuable experience Tuesday in the 200-meter freestyle and 200-meter individual medley preliminaries at the US Olympic Trials.

KU signee Jenny Nusbaum, Jayhawk All-American Chelsie Miller and KU freshman phenom Haley Bishop all took their turns in the pool Tuesday.

Miller and sophomore-to-be Libby Walker will close out their Olympic Trials competition today in the 200-meter butterfly.

The competition was deep Tuesday as all but one of the top-16 qualifiers for finals swam better than two minutes in prelims, including Katie Ledecky who set the pace with a 1:55.60.
