Tara Kirk finished second to Amanda Beard in the 100 Breaststroke final earlier this evening in Long Beach with a time of 1:07:69, just 5 tenths of a second behind Beard.
I would have posted this earlier, but I wanted our West Coast readers to be able to see the results on NBC. The trials were tape-delayed on the West Coast while they were shown live in the Eastern and Central time zones.
