Go Carsten! Great swim.

One year with Salo and I get that Eddie Moses 2.0 kind of feeling. And I think I likes it!

Looks like Carsten is on his way to some great things next summer.


It looks like Carsten and Seliskar were both untapered at WUGs. Since they both have the same coach now it might be reasonable to think that Seliskar could knock 2 seconds off each 100 of his 200fly and maybe go 1:52. That might be reaching a little but I feel like a 1:53 low should absolutely happen

Yes. You’re right. I think Michael Phelps’ world record is even in trouble.


Seriously? I honestly can’t tell if you’re serious.

I would imagine it’s a bit of sarcasm. Go back and check the number of swimmers who have gone a 1:52 textile 200m fly and you’ll realize that it’s being thrown around a little too loosely here. KT can’t seriously think that 2 seconds off each 100 is possible. He must be joking and Bobo is making light of it.

Yes. It was pure sarcasm from my part. But I believed it was clear. 🙂
For KT, no idea.
More seriously, he was clearly not tapered at WUGs and we can expect a 1.54 high/1.55 low at Nationals.
