Very proud of Katinka! It can not be easy to talk about such a thing and try to keep up the good work at the same time. Katinka, you are a very powerful woman.

Swimming needs more superstars like Katinka. She does a great job of branding and getting publicity outside of the pool. If I remember, a recent instagram post had her on the cover of a fashion magazine. If the sport is going to grow, it needs people with a big vision like her

Give Shane a chance. I bet that once he stops wearing a man-bun and his ball cap backwards, and stops rocking a thin boy-band beard, he’ll really settle down.

I’m not sure if Shane is really interested in her as a business partner any more. Their personal relationships? Doesn’t look if it worth to keep this union alive after they both made internal matter public.

I am rooting for Katinka more than ever. Swimming is the anchor for many of us swimmers and swammers – not just for those at the elite level. I hope she can find inspiration and enjoyment in the water independent of coaches, medals, rankings, times, and prize money xo

It is going to be interesting to see whether Shane ever goes public to discuss further the training “methods” that led Katinka to such outstanding performances late in her career.

Unusually very few comments regarding current and future form of Hosszu from Hungarian fans. Is her popularity declining in Hungary?
