Thanks. We will see in the morning if anyone fails their Covid test. Adam Peaty probably isn’t there yet since he just had a baby? They can make an exception for him! Is Seto doing it? Are some swimmers joking later?

There are definitely swimmers coming later – the documentation says there’s a 2nd wave between the 11th and 19th. A lot of those will be Tokyo – seems like maybe they got the first week bye on purpose so that they could swim at the Japanese SC Championships before coming over to Budapest.

This was the “first wave” that was tested today, so to speak. Lots of other names we’re hearing about who are coming later for one reason or another.
