In the morning's preliminaries, Brewer came in 22nd in the 500-free at 4:34.82, just two seconds short of the cutoff in a sub-five minute race. In the 200-individual medley, Nybo came in 27th, clocking in at 1:52.29. And rounding out the crew, Sanchez finished 42nd in the 50-free, touching the wall at 23.93.
