The actual leaderboard shows that many swim stars from all over Europe participated in one or two stops of the Golden Tour Camille Muffat so far – but  the start lists for this weekend present only a few international swimmers like Hungary’s  Katinka Hosszu, and David Verraszto, Belgium’s Pieter Timmers or Jeremy Desplanches (Switzerland, trains in France).

Nations like Japan and Great Britain just held their World Championships Trials and swimmers are preparing now for the season highlight in Budapest. Additionally, German swimmers are curerently focused with first priority on their upcoming qualification in 7 weeks.

But nonetheless, the French, Hungarian and Swiss swimmers showed solid perfomances tonight:

Katinka Hosszu won the women’s 800m freestyle in 8:38.39, this race started at 5 pm and she stood on the block again at 5:55 pm to win in the 400m IM in 4:36,19 . This is just off her season best of 4:35.46, swum at the Euro Meet in Luxembourg at the end of January.

France’s Fantine Lesaffre touched second in 4:43.01 (400m IM) . She was also just off her season best, which is  .01 seconds faster. It’s also a FINA A-cut.

Damien Joly (FRA) clocked the fastest time of 15:07.23 in the men’s 1500m Freestyle. Joly finished 14th at the Rio Olympic Games with his personal best time of 14:48.90.

Hungarian David Verraszto grabbed the win in the men’s 400m IM in 4:14.77, he is the actual number one in the FINA World ranking with his season best time of 4:10.01, only 0.11 seconds slower than his personal best time he set at the 2015 World Championships in Kazan 2015 when he won the silver medal.

Switzerland’s Jeremy Desplanches finished second in 4:16,04 tonight, he was not far off his personal best time (4:15,46) – he now ranked 13th in the world  and his time also is an A-cut.

The Iron Lady seemed to hit her groove in her next three races. Katinka Hosszu set the pace in the 50m backstroke with the winning time of 28158, then she came back less than 10 minutes later to win the B-Final of the 50m breaststroke in 33.13 and jumped again into the pool 15 minutes later for a fifth place finish in the 50m butterfly with a time of 27.11.

Belgium’s Fanny Lecluyse took the win in the 50m breaststroke in 31.59 ahead of France’s Charlotte Bonnet (31,87).

Jeremy Stravius (FRA) won the men’s 50m backstroke in 25.48, winner in the men’s 50m breaststroke was Jeremy Desplanches (SUI)  in 28.30.

France’s Mehdy Metella touched first in the 50m butterfly in a personal best time of 23.58 – fast enough for the 11th place in the world ranking.

Katinka Hosszu ended today’s “iron show” with a win in the 1500m freestyle in 16:35.97. France’s Adeline Furst swam a personal best time in 16:36.29 and always was on Hosszu’s heels.

First race for Hosszu tomorrow will be 200 free. It can happen to be a rematch between her and Charlotte Bonnet. In Nice less than a month ago it was a very close race where swimmers showed their best this season (1:56.81 and 1:56.98). If both swimmers are ambitious enough to push themselves strongly for the win ( that most likely can happen) then we can get a very good indicator of what form Hosszu in now. Her modest in season times showed during multi-event sessions are very little of help to make some estimates. Tomorrow can be very different thing at first race of the session, facing competition in the range not far from her personal best at this… Read more »

IMHO this season they focus only on technique at the different meets and don’t want the competition to know her real shape and event strength.
BTW that 28 mid in 50 back is not bad in the middle of such a schedule.

Prickle

I was right: it was a race. Now I got some understanding where Hosszu stands at at her key events.

Riez

No, it wasn’t. No, you don’t 🙂 Do you really think that Hosszu can only swim a 1:56 high and finish third in 200IM?

Prickle

You have no way to know what I’m thinking 🙂 But if I chose to bet I’m pretty confident with that now. My opinion won’t be based exactly on today’s results, but i got some idea where she stands after tapering relative to her current personal bests
Wanna bet? 🙂

Riez

I am in 🙂 Let’s bet for her event schedule and final times. If that is fine with you, my one is:
200 IM 2:05 mid
200 Fly 2:04 mid
200 Back 2:05 low
400 IM 4:30 low

Prickle

Dear RIEZ, I like people who are joking and am very careful with those who doesn’t appreciate humor. I think that you wasn’t joking by listening these times. My opinion is that that is what you most likely want her to achieve rather than you are ready to bet seriously. Because you are Hungarian or have some special ties with Hungary I won’t bet for you to lose but I agree that if I’m not right I will refrain any negative discussion of Katinka Hosszu for the period of three months 🙂 I would agree with you that she will avoid any doubles. Therefore it will be no 100bk and no 200 free. I haven’t seen her most recent races… Read more »

Riez

My point is – and yes, I am not joking, and yes, I have the advantage to speak Hungarian – that no one knows her agenda other than herself and her husband, nonetheless, whatever it is, we can be sure that she will get there. By betting I meant a pint or two. 🙂
