At least they were good enough to make it…..


dylan carter is probably good enough to make it in the US though

Romany had some injuries earlier this year, but last year as a 16 year old was 23.5 in the 50 free, 50.99 in the 100 free, and 1:52.46 in the 200 free. His 50 has been due for a dop for some time now as he was 23.77 as a 14 year old.

Renzo has been 23.19 already this year in the 50 free.


no girls? too bad
