With high-level competition like Adam Peaty, Niccolo Martinenghi, and Arno Kamminga, Fink welcomes the opportunity to race at the highest level just months before the US Olympic Trials in June.

glad to see these guys so candid about being broken down. Some teams arent taking that approach as much.

Agreed. Practicing managing the prelims/semis/finals racing at a high level can be very useful
