I like that the picture is of one of the greatest sprinters of all time.


I wish I was able to vote that comment up more than once

lol. I was just thinking how Anthony dies at anything more than a 50 and here they have him in the banner for a mile.

Swimswam is clearly messing with us.


Off topic, have there ever been any elite distance swimmers that were primarily sprinters in HS, but turned into an elite level distance swimmer?

Going down in distance, I know Ryk Neethling turned into an elite sprint freestyler for South Africa’s 400 FRR in 2004 splitting a 47 after being a multi time 500/1650 champ in college, and Justin Ress started off as a mid distanc/distance guy and is now a stud sprinter. I’m sure there are other examples but these ar here first two that come to mind.

That guy

I think it’d be hard to find guys who went sprint to distance imo. Distance guys usually still train with everyone else, at least up until college, which is mostly mid-distance. So would only take some specialization at that point, making it slightly easier to go distance to sprint. Going up would be much more challenging. Training for a 50/100 in high school is so much different than a 1650 in college.
