OMAHA, Neb. -- Two-time O.C. Register swimmer of the year Melanie Klaren (Aliso Niguel), 23, missed the semifinals of the 100-meter backstroke Monday by about four-tenths of a second but dropped a tenth from her seed-time with a 1:01.69.

Klaren is focused more on the 200 backstroke on Friday but also has made some important life decisions. The former Cal captain will retire from swimming this summer and become an assistant coach at Duke.

“This is my last meet, so I’m just going to have fun,” she said. “I made World University Games last summer. I wanted to pick my end date. ... I’m really happy with that choice. Being here is awesome.”
