Texas swims in a short pool

so i guess we cant give coleman stewart the award 2x in a row. Dude went 45.5 and didnt win this award lol.

2 Cents

I agree. Last week I thought a pair of UVA women were robbed of this, but this week it’s clearly stewart who was robbed of this. They were tired of giving it to Douglass, and they were clearly tired of giving it to Stewart this week. Shame. Maybe Somov was awarded for having a -.70 relay start and not getting caught…
