Thank you for this new segment of swimswam. Always good to watch 2 passionate guys who talk about swimming. I don’t understand all what you say but I understand most of your comments and it’s very interesting.
I’ve voted for Ryan Murphy in the poll of the week.
In the weeks to come I think you will have some records to comment like world records by Camille Muffat in short course meters and american records by Missy Franklin or Katie Ledecky in short course yards.

That means you listened all the way to the end – victory!
