11 races. 8 days. 5 events. 4 gold medals. 4 world records. 1 hell of a meet! . . . . Could not ask for a better group of individuals to be surrounded by as my first world championships come to a close. Love you all and thanks for a great ride this past month! Nothing better than being part of the winningest team in USA Swimming history!
