No interview about his 200fly.
Title made me think there was a video of the swim…. oh well….
He knows he needs a solid second 50 against the rest of the world in te 100 free ….he will have it i think by July .
He came back in 24.7 when he swam 47.8 at night, with more easy speed he should be close to 24.5 coming back and much faster going out. Will be hard for most of the top 8 to match that/be faster on the 2nd 50 while also going out with him. We could see some crazy times this summer and in tokyo
Schooling came back in 23.9 in practice and it felt monotonous
Sorry old joke but if there’s not a schooling joke in the comments is it really a swimswam article?
I think the charter requires a schooling or Farris joke in every thread
The infamous “Chuck Norris facts” wore initially about Dean Farris, but the NCAA censured the original content
Yea, but MA negative-split his Cheerios this morning…..
*Comes home in 24.3* … “I would have liked to have been faster coming home”
Stay humble and keep working = success
I might try and negative split a 25 tomorrow.
Past that, no guarantees
