Guy is gonna win the gold in Rio….
unless Agnel transforms in the next 4 months
and unless Haas shocks the world at US trials.

Haas is gonna win the gold in Rio!
Guy will have to settle for silver.
And Agnel will be lucky if he gets the night swim.

I see Haas doing big things this summer. In my opinion no doubt a top 3 finish, possibly a gold medal performance.

The olympic qualifying time for the 200 free is 147.97.
1.45.91 would mean only 5 people would qualify worldwide (so far)

nope its actually 1:45, great britain set super hard standards this year. 1:47.9 is the a cut but great Britain made it faster for their athletes.
