Giles will be top five at nationals–he’s got something to prove (in a good way);he’ll go around 51.7

i agree – lots of heart – constantly getting 2nd or 3rd. I think he has lots of power, but doesnt have a really relaxed/smooth stroke IMO. his hands land a bit too close, giving a windmill like rotation on both arms, which may or may not be good for a sprint flyer.

51.7 is good, im hoping hes below 51.5 – Id like him to chase that 2nd fly spot in 16 – he’s got the power, can he develop more tho? we’ll see!
