Top 4 Teams Make Single-Swimmer Swaps For Euro Women’s 4×200 Final

2018 LEN EUROPEAN AQUATICS CHAMPIONSHIPS

Each of the top four qualifying teams have made swaps of one swimmer from the prelims lineup heading into finals of the women’s 4×200 free relay.

Top qualifier Russia should get a big boost, subbing in Anastasia Guzhenkovawho was 1:56.77 individually, for Irina Krivonogova. Krivonogova was the only member of the relay this morning above two minutes on her split.

Great Britain should get a similar boost. 17-year-old Freya Anderson is in after splitting 1:55.8 on the mixed 4×200 free relay earlier this week. She takes over for 2:01 morning leg Lucy Hope, who was only a tick faster on the relay than she was individually.

Germany is pulling in distance swimmer Sarah Koehlerwho has previously been 1:58 in an individual 200 free. That’d be about a two-second upgrade. France gets likely the biggest upgrade, going from 2:00 Alizee Morel to 1:54.9 European champ Charlotte BonnetThat difference alone would have moved their prelims finish from 4th to 2nd, though the other relays should also get significantly faster tonight.
