I see one of the storylines being a mention about Darren Lim. I wouldnt expect Darren to shine at YOG, no offense, but he has mentioned he’s not focused on swimming this year because of studies. But it would be a good meet for Darren to basically gain more big meet experience, he kinda froze at the Southeast Asian Games last year end.

Technically though, Hong Kong is not considered Southeast Asia, more just East Asia

Day 2 Races:

Men 200 Free: A 1:48 mid swimmer, a 1:49 low, 2 1:49 high and then 5 guys who swim 1:50, including Santana.. might be interesting.

Men 100 Fly: There is a chinesse swimmer (15 years don´t know if it´s a typo) with 52,79 then 1 53 guy and 12 54 swimmers!

Men 200 IM: 2 swimmers on 2:03, and 9 swimmers with 2:04, close race too.

Women 200 Fly: Easy event almost, 1 2:08 swimmers, 2 2:09 and 1 2:10 swimmer.. much ahead of the field by now..

100 free: 4 Girls with 54 swimming, and four more with 55.. Might see a 54 low 53 high even.. strong..

Rafael, some times are wrong. Shen Duo is seeded with 54.77.She is the junior record holder with 54.15.We can not trust the sheets soo much.Santana is listed as 1,86 and 75kg!I believe that was his 15year-old measurements… maybe he didnd grow up a lot(i thougth he was 1,90)but he clearly weights much more than 75…

It is not a typo. Li Zhuhao is still indeed 15 yo, and he swam 52.79 in Qingdao in May this year. Crazy fast for a 15 yo, and I think that’s the world’s record for 15 yo boy.

With the exception of Ruta and Santana who are hot favorites to win their events, I have to say it will be very very interesting to watch all the races just because it is quite unpredictable.
Especially in the relays. It will be fun.

Later i will try to analyze some more events. All except the free relays are doable to do by start times. Even the mixed freestyle relay

Quick day 1 analysis (Olympic Events)
Men 400 free – Top 3 under 3:53 (Jacek Wodjak 3:51:20, Sanches Gutierrez 3:51:93, Henrik Crhistiansen 3:52:60)

Men 100 breast, probably most competitive event of day 1 – The fastest one is Carlos Clevaria 1:01:88, counting him there as 12 guys under 1:03

Women 100 Back: 6 swimmers under 1:02, 2 of them under 1:01

Women 200 IM: apart from Ruta 2:12 2 girls under 2:15 and 5 more under 2:16

For the freestyle relay, I would need some help to analyze other countries.. for Brazil Both Flyer and Backstroker of Brazil have already been 49 high relay start (the flyer was the number 1 100 freestyler at 16 years only slower than… Read more »

GB has been 3.19.78 at this years junior european championship and they are only missing their second fastest guy (49.67), so theyll very likely be 3.20.50 or better.

47 easily on relay start? Why not world record? I think youre clearly underestimating him!!!

Santana already have 48,35 flat start. Breaking 48 is not something difficult on relay start with that flat time

Well, sadly its not that easy i guess, just ask guys like Stravius (positive) or Magnussen.

He could do it, but “not difficult”? Imo its not really important anyway, since i dont see brazil near a medal anyway, gb/russia?/usa?/china? are/should be better, maybe you can win bronze medal (dont know if that would be what youre hoping for?).

Looking forward to seeing what last year’s world junior champ in the womens 100 free, Siobhan Haughey from Hong Kong, can do in the freestyles. She’s probably focusing on the Asian games next month though.
