51.7 will be a steep time to beat

Let’s see his 100 back tapered at nationals first, really think the 100 &/or 200 free is his ticket to Paris, and honestly I want Grevers to get the 2 spot after his rough 2016 and how he’s come back as strong as ever(he’s our last link to 2008 along with Schmitt!)

Unlikely that Luca will beat Schooling at the Olympics, but that’s only because I think Luca will make it in the 200 fly, but not the 100 fly and Schooling won’t race the 200 fly.

nah, that short course time doesn’t necessarily convert to long course really well. He’s probably going to get 5th or something

I still wish Annie Lazor was there, but it’ll still be fun to watch a race between King and Efimova
