In the 4×50 the other notable move is Vladimir Morozov heading to the lead-off leg and Evgeny Rylov to the anchor, as Russia has taken Kliment Kolesnikov and Sergy Fesikov off from prelims and keep on Evgeny Sedov and Ivan Kuzmenko.

Other notable moves in the 4×200 include Sun Yang moving to China’s 3rd leg while Wang Shun is a new addition to the anchor, Cameron McEvoy has joined Australia’s team, and Nicholas Santos steps in for Brazil.

Russia, the top seeds from prelims, have made two moves, adding Martin Malyutin and Mikhail Vekovishchev while leaving Ivan Girev and Aleksandr Krasnykh on and bumping out Mikhail Dovgalyuk and Vladislav Grinev.

Expecting them to deliver well.. not too much expecting Breno Scheffer and Altamir all swimming 1:42 low, even a 1:41 flying start and Santos can go a 1:43 high 1:44 low..
