    Us is a big country that why there are more competitors but Japan and China are the best of the asian countries. US is now about 6 percent asian and the asian swimmers in the US some have made the Semi finals. Breaststroke is a event where height is not important since you have in the case of Hansen closer to average height and size.

    Some of your oldest competitors now are in Breaststroke. In the past women’s breaststroke was thought as sometimes a teenage event. Amanda Beard at 15 and Megan Qunice at 16 years old. But both male and female breaststrokers are more likey to include post-college swimmers than in the past. Breastroke is timing and once you go thru the body changes and adjust your timing you can swim it almost any age.
