McEvoy 47.88 in heats, after swimming a 400 free. Magnussen 48.52 in heats, faster then trials time.

Will certainly be interesting to see what they may swim in the finals; I wouldn’t care to predict. Will McEvoy bother swimming the 400 final ? As the 2nd fastest non Japanese, he can but whether he’ll bother is another matter.

Have a sneaking suspicion C1 will look to at least match Sjostrom’s time from Euros. C2 seems to have cruised the heats so I suspect she should at least be sub53.5 tonight but I’d be surprised if she was under 53.

Pretty sure that 100-400 double has never been done in a full comp let alone 1 prelim session .

Gina, you are getting senile. Ian Thorpe medaled in both 100 (bronze) and 400 (gold) at 2003 World championships and 2004 Olympics.

Not in 47.88 idiot . That is the pertinent fact . Who has been under that in textile -Mcevoy Magnussen Adrian & maybe one or 2 others & NONE did a 400 in the same session nor the same meet .

swimswammer

3:52 wouldn’t have made the meet, let alone medalled in both as Thorpe did

Park went 3.44 and 48 in the same session at NSW States a few years ago

48s are quite common . Plus Park was on testosterone so it doesn’t count.

swimswammer

3:52 is quite common. I’d say 3:44 and 48 is more impressive than 3:52 and 47.8

Cam McEvoy is going to destroy everyone in the 100m free!!!!!!!! :)))))))))) Go McEvoy
