Nicholas Santos Predicts World Record 50 Fly in Semi Final Match (Video)


Reported by Ben Dornan.


There’s really nothing much to be said about this race aside from the fact that winner Nicholas Santos has certainly brought the fire this season, earning some of the biggest jackpots that we’ve seen this season. This swim today was no exception as he destroyed the competition and picked up a massive 30 points, stealing from everyone except Tokyo’s Kawamoto.

This effort may have been just what Iron needed to ensure that Toronto will not be able to catch them for third. The 21.78 swim was only 0.03 off his own world record from back in 2018.

Age is just a number! Lance Armstrong was 39 when he came out of retirement and took 3rd in the Tour. The next 2 years, he had a respectable showing.
Dara Torres was 41 when she set the America records in the 50 and 100 free.
Anything is possible!

This picture reminds me of Rocky III when Stallone got down to 3% body fat. The veins in the arms. Middle aged naturally ripped. I heard it said that Stallone learned a long from guys like Hulk Hogan (in the movie) on how to get ripped like Arnold Schwartzeneggar.
