King and Murphy punch tickets to Paris as Ledecky wins again

Lilly King and Ryan Murphy are heading to their third straight Olympics after victories Monday at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, where Katie Ledecky expanded her options for her fourth consecutive Games in Paris.

World record holder King led the way and won the 100 meter breaststroke in 1:05.43 and thus earned a chance to win the Olympic title she won in Rio de Janeiro in 2016.

She was followed home by Emma Weber in 1:06.10, while Tokyo gold medalist Lydia Jacoby finished third – leaving her without a chance to defend her title in the pressure cooker trials in which only the top two finishers qualify for individual Olympic swimming sessions.
