There was a swimswam article about how Popovici is not swimming for the breakers- pretty sure the Breakers announced on Instagram that David was part of the roster (and Popovici acknowledged it)

I think Popovici is just missing for the regular season? Perhaps Swimswam can confirm?

That’s correct, as far as we’ve been told by NYB head coach/GM Martin Truijens.

Looking at the rosters, though, it’s going to take a big effort for the Breakers to make the post-season.

Yui Ohashi was 100% not in the draft pool, why is she now flying to Italy to race for Tokyo??? Thats the definition of cheating?

I’m also confused.
So one of Tokyo’s key player just didn’t enter the draft pool so no team could draft her. And then she’s signed by Tokyo again through free agency? What’s the point of the drafting if this is allowed?

It was stink a bit but if I remember right Tokyo didn’t retain the full number of swimmers before the draft so could’ve retained Ohashi.

Change of subject – case against Brenton Rickard (Australian breastroker) from a sample from London 2012 has been dropped. He’s left with a $50000 bill.
