Posted by Ron Judd

King Aquatic swimmers Megan Jendrick and Margaret Hoelzer put themselves in line for Beijing medals early this morning, Seattle time, by qualifying the U.S. medley relay team in preliminary heats.

Hoelzer swam a backstroke leg of 59.29, Jendrick swam a breaststroke leg of 1:07.17; Elaine Breeden added a butterfly leg of 58.59, and Kara-Lynn Joyce swam the freestyle in 54:10. The total time, 3:59.15, was enough to win the heat, with China lurking at 3:59.21.

The second heat was won by Australia, at 3:57.94.

The final is at 7:40 p.m. Saturday in the Disadvantaged Time Zone.
