Amy Bilquist Building on Unexpected First National Title in First Pro Year



Today: USA national champion in the 100 backstroke.

After winning five relay national titles at Cal, and coming close to winning several times as an individual, Bilquist stood alone with a thrilling and unexpected gold medal around her neck a the 2019 Phillips 66 U.S. National Championships in August.

It was thrilling because it was her first individual title. It was unexpected because she had broken her hand just six weeks before nationals.

5 WOMEN'S RACES TO WATCH AT SWIMMING'S 2019 U.S. OPEN


50 FREE
Then you've got a bunch of vets like Margo Geer (Pan Ams silver medalist), Madison Kennedy (Pan Ams bronze medalist), and Olivia Smoliga (one of the top ISL performers this season) combining with some 200 types swimming down to the 50 (Siobhan Haughey, Mallory Comerford) in a loaded field.

200 FREE
Then there are a bunch of depth swimmers who will probably be competing for Olympic relay spots in this race next summer: Cal grad Katie McLaughlin was a key leg of the American 4200 relay at Worlds last year, splitting 1:55.3. She didn't get to swim the event individually at Worlds, and could be in line for a huge time drop from her 1:56.4 best this week.

100 BACK
Fellow pros Amy Bilquist and Ali Deloof are also in that speedster mold. Isabelle Stadden (17) is better in the 200, where she was the Pan Ams silver medalist, but is also a rising contender here.
