Why is Horton’s 400 Free meet Record not the WJR?

the records are reversed I think. The meet record is actually the WJR and 3:47 is the meet record.

3:44:60, Australian Championships, Brisbane, 2014, 2nd place.

Anne,
men’s 200 fly WJR: Kristóf Milák, 1:53.79 (2017, Netánja).

It’s odd, but the entry list doesn’t show Milak’s record either… wonder if FINA is just reaaaaaaaally slow ratifying it.

It has been ratified already, so I think it’s only a typo.

I think it’s boys 15-18 and girls 14-17, right? Not the other way around…

Of course, and it goes with the year of birth, so girls born 2000-2003 and boys born 1999-2002.

I’m looking foward most to the mens 200 fly. Milak has gone 1:53.79 this season, which would have medalwd at worlds. He swam it all alone, as second place was 4 seconds back. He didn’t swim it at worlds sadly, but he did swim the 100, where he dropped his PB drom 51.4 from the samw meet as that 200 fly to 50.6. This suggest that he could have had a massive time drop in the 200 fly had he swum it. Now a month later he will get the chance.
This kid is genuinely capable of a 1:52.
He holds the actually WJR in both the 100 and 200 fly, faster than Phelps was at the same… Read more »

He will still have next year Jr Olympics to drop that records even further

Kristóf swam 3 World Junior Records in Budapest. Heats, semis, final, 51,23, 50,77, 50,62. The last two was/is Hungarian Record (and we have Cseh, Kenderesi, Biczó and had Darnyi etc.).
He couldn’t swim the 200 fly in Budapest because Cseh and Kenderesi was faster till the team was selected.
Otherwise Biczó was also faster at the same age than MP, for some years, so nobody knows what will happen in the future (Biczó was younger then, so the possibility is higher for Milák).

Can we see 3 Sweeps this year? Milak on 50/100/200 fly.. he is seeded with 23,7 only on 50 fly but he went 23,8 on his way to the 50,6 100 fly. Also Kolesnikov sweeping the backs (he is the WJR on all 3 races). Also Regan smith on the backs

Probability: Kolesnikov > Milak > Regan (Because Milak would net to drop less time on 50 then Regan, also he has a bigger advantage on the 100)

Polina Egorova is a very promising backstroker in my opinion. If she is in good form, not impossible to see her at 59″ low in the 100 back and at 2.07 in the 200 back. In the 50 back Regan Smith will have, beyond Egorova, other strong opponents.

Milak is, obviously, the heavy favorite in the 200 fly.and also in the 100 fly, even if Kuimov beat him at Eurojuniors 3 weeks before the Worlds. In the 50 fly Andrew will be the favorite

Yes, Kolesnikov with more chances, but won’t be easy winning the 50 back also for him..

Martinenghi strong favorite in the 50 and 100 breastroke. The 200 br, , in the two last season, has become… Read more »

I sure hope so. If not, that’s okay. He’s got a good career lined up for himself, so hopefully he isn’t feeling too much pressure about it.
