OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Jessica Hardy is heading to the Olympics for
the first time, winning the 100-meter breaststroke at the U.S.
Hardy was under world-record pace on the flip and managed to
hold on, winning with a time of 1 minute, 6.87 seconds. Megan
Jendrick, who won two golds at the Sydney Olympics as Megan Quann
but just missed making the team four years ago, claimed the
expected second spot for Beijing in 1:07.50 -- one-hundredth of a
second ahead of Tara Kirk.
Three-time Olympian Amanda Beard missed her first chance to get
back on the team, finishing sixth in 1:08.80. She considers the 200
breaststroke her better event.
