Thats what I was thinking. Minakov was 47.5 in october and Grinev was 47.5 in 2019 I believe. Morozov hasn’t been that fast since 2013

I think Kolesnikov will make top 4, based on his free relay splits at last year’s ISL.

Their contenders for the last spot aren’t too shabby either: Kolesnikov or Rylov

The Japanese Olympic Trials is going to be really good. The men’s 200 meter breaststroke world record will probably be broken 2 times as well as the men’s 400 IM.

4 IM definitely not. 2 BR maybe once, though I doubt it.

Can Russia participate in relay events at the Olympics?

The Women’s 3000m speed skating relay at 2018 winter Olympics had an ‘Olympic athletes from Russia’ relay team, so the precedent is there.

What would happen if any of them made a Russian flag tatoo on her/his shoulder?
