Surprisingly lenient qualification standards for the Canadians, much like the Australians. I have a feeling the English have got it slightly wrong, our standards are ridiculous. A few examples…

50m Free – 21.6 & 24.59
400m Free – 3.45.85 & 4.04.03
100m Breast – 59.80 & 1.07.36

I suspect a lot of athletes will be getting through on what are essentially ‘B’ times.
