“My times in this meet weren’t really good because my times went up,” said Chua. “But I think it’s a nice opportunity to race again because I was able to see where I’m actually at and how I can I improve on it in training.”

Chua won the women’s 200m individual medley, as she was the only swimmer in the event, and the women’s 200m freestyle.
