He would be around 12~15cm shorter than Cielo.. Bovell must be around 2 meters so?

Why is it that the 50 was so much faster this year than in 2011?

All women 50 fly medalists are very pleasant looking.

(I am avoiding the word “beautiful” just in case swimswammers call me a pervert, like the fate of Bobo Gigi)

I will call them beautiful. Clearly they take an interest in being attractive, painting the nails etc. A lot of the athletes (male & female) make money by being models, obviously selling their beauty.I am sure they would not mind being called beautiful.

What!? Is it wrong to use a word “beautiful”? It’s Finnish counterpart is definitely a nice thing to say about woman.

Incredible….Cielo won being only the fifth in first 15 meters.Ervin made 5.60 in first 15 meters what is HORRIBLE.Such talent under water and too bad at start!

Click in series1.

Note:Cielo best first 15 meters(textile) is 4.90seconds… what he can do if his knees recover is amazing.

I think this Worlds provide a huge lesson:

Never pick a current active NCAA swimmer to win medal, no matter how ridiculously fast their SCY records are.

Wait until they graduate for at least a year. Last year, even Schmitt red shirted to focus on training LCM.

Can someone please confirm if there’s an individual medal winner who was still swimming college this past season?

Morozov?
And all 50 free podium was past NCAA champions.

Yes, that is why I said current NCAA swimmer.

Morozov has made intention last season that he would no longer swim in NCAA, so it seems he already focused his training on LCM.

Adrian graduated 2 or 3 years ago?, Bovell? god knows how many years.

Reply to  aswimfan

I think Adrian was 2012.

Its hard to put any NCAA swimmer because yards sucks big time.Its LESS pool.If it was Short Course Meters, i think it would be another story…

Beisel. Bronze in the 400 IM nearly duplicating her Olympic time even though her training hasn’t been there this season.

Ottesen-Gray is stacked!
I think she can take down that scrawny kid Le Clos easily.

Le Clos will get much faster when he starts build up muscles (and stop looking left and right during races).

Reply to  aswimfan

Haha…i saw that on TV… the swimmer specialist was telling Le Clos will stop to look when he lose the race.

Very easily. Cate doesn’t look weak either.

Cate commented in an interview with Aussie media:

“They are bringing in mixed relays for the next world championships so watch out world. The Aussies are back,”

That’s a good remark. Currently Aussie’s mixed relay would be quite scary for others.

The muscles on gold medalists Jeanette Gray and Ruta (barely 16 years old) are Massive. I hope they are drug-free. Both are beautiful as well.
