so in theory Michael will not taper for Trials because of USRPT right? so his time there won’t be much different than this meet, maybe 1:01 mid?

We’ll probably know after this summer how his career will turn. Backward or forward. If he has peaked at 15/16 as it can happen for youth superstars. Or if the best is yet to come. Too early to tell right now.
