How can Mitch Larkin swim so fast?

Can someone please explain?

Love power. He and Seebohm are racing each other who can break the WR first. And YES, they are dating.

Like Jesus Shuttleworth, “he got game”.

Is McEvoy now the 2nd fastest in textile ever for 200 fr? I think only Agnel has been faster.
