Just stop. You either post inappropriate or in this case, irrelevant material each time you post.

Aren’t you the same guy who spams “Abbie Wood should be DISQUALIFIED” every NY breakers match?

At least I am posting my view on a swimming topic, rather than spam posting obnoxious content or videos. At least I stick to swim related content, not political rants, external video links, or offensive references to swimmers not from your country.

Additionally, I firmly believe that Abbie Wood should be disqualified, she is blatantly cheating during breaststroke and individual medley events. If you thought Hannis or Shymanovich was bad, take a good peak at Abbie Wood’s breaststroke kick. She does 1.5 fly kicks during one breaststroke kick cycle. And has never been called on it, and probably never will.

Seto is worst every wall is a clear double dolphin kick. One before the pullout and one with the pullout, no ‘body levelling out’ causes that big of a movement or generated that much power
