lane 1 200 fly was passed 15M when she broke surface IMO

Not a UT fan

I’m still not convinced. It looks like her shoulders and elbows are above surface level when her head is at 15. If she had taken a breath on the first stroke I think she would have been safe, so she shouldn’t be penalized for keeping her head down.


She had a great, legal b.o.
Officials aren’t used to seeing swimmers go exactly 15m… it’s normally 11, 12, or even 14.5… but never 15m exactly.
It doesn’t seem she even got an advantage on the other swimmers from her longer b.o. … it’s not like she went 20y uw both ways on a 50 fr.


Based on this video you saw that or the other posted by their coach.. the markers on the ropes are not the exact measurement, but a guideline. The official measurement is taken from the bulkhead and marked on the deck.


thanks for posting these videos


Girl at the end of the 100 free video: “is that a 45?!?!” yup still in disbelief


I keep watching it over and over again.
