Seeing as he just moved Im guessing he wanted to get a full training block in before resting for a meet like this– seems like a smart play especially with the olympics looming… Probably getting some work under his belt leading up to 2020

SA does not consider Fina A qualifying times for non-Olympic events. Zane Waddell’s 24.78 in the 50 Back prelims and MIchael Houlie’s 26.91 in the 50 Breast final are still worth noting (since they are World Championship events).
