Elizabeth Pelton says she felt like "the little kid in a candy store. " From a swimming standpoint, why wouldn't she? She had just finished second in the 200-meter backstroke final at the Phillips 66 National Championships on June 25 and swam a personal best for the first time in almost three years. It was about as sweet of a moment that the swimmer from Towson remembers, for about one year earlier at the United States Olympic Team Trials, she was on the brink of a nightmarish meet that would change the path of her career.

Olympian Michael Phelps will be competing in four events at the Maryland Swimming Championships at the Naval Academy this weekend, and his participation is further proof of just how different swimming is from other sports. It's not likely you'll ever see LeBron James compete in a local three-on-three tournament or Tiger Woods tee it up in a friendly scramble at the municipal course just down the street from his house. But this weekend at Lejeune Hall in Annapolis, Phelps will be just another face in the crowd at the short-course meet where a majority of the competitors are teenagers or younger.

Missy Franklin and Elizabeth Beisel were the top two finishers in the 200-meter backstroke Sunday, earning spots on the Olympic team.

Her family, who moved from Connecticut to the Baltimore area for her to swim at NBAC, were in the stands. She has been training in Naples with her former NBAC coach, Paul Yetter, and is headed to Cal-Berkeley in the fall.
