   2 Pat Austin          5.694 253.02  Q    5 Chuck Cheeseman     5.715 250.00

 *****WINNER***** 0.453  5.656 253.52  E4                  0.466  5.734 249.30
Austin's not been out of the sixties all day long, and he's got lane choice here, so he has to be considered the favorite. But Cheeseman's had a great day and this is the final, where anything can happen, after all. And it's Austin, with his sixty-s eventh career victory, an awesome record to be sure. Cheeseman was right there, but Team Austin wasn't going to make a mistake and that's what it would have taken to deny them this victory.
