Pellegrini’s win still gives me goosebumps. The lioness pounce at the end of the race is pure class.

Ledecky’s last 50 was very slow 29.75. That is about 0.5 sec slower than the average of her 8 best races. That is more than the difference between Pelligrini and Ledecky at finish.
At the same meet it was 27.3 day before in semifinal after 1500 and it was 27.28 in 4×200 relay day after Something wasn’t right with her in final. She simply stopped swimming at the end of the race.
On the other hand Pelligrini was 28.72. I don’t remember her to be that fast since 2009. I don’t know anybody besides Schmitt in 2012 who was under 29sec at last fifty.

A true racer is the one who does what needs to be done to win on race day. It’s not about the time. Granted, Ledecky was not the Ledecky of 2016. Yet Federica was there and found it in her to swim those final 15 metres at an incredible speed. You need to remember she is an “old” gal, 29 at the time, racing against girls in their prime. Of course now we have 30somethings winning olympic medals. But not many in distances over 100 metres.

First of all I want to congratulate you with this goosebumping race of your great swimmer. Some corrections to my previous post. Schmitt was not under 29 in London. It was 29.26 Pelligrini in her world record race in high-tech suit was 28.60. Not that far from 28.72 in Budapest. But she was under 29sec once more swimming her personal best in textile. “A true racer is the one who does what needs to be done to win on race day.” That is exactly what each winner says. That was Franklin beating Pelligrini in Barcelona, that was Ledecky outtouching Pelligrini in Kazan, that is Pelligrini winning against Ledecky in Budapest. And the last thing. I’m not comparing with Ledecky in… Read more »

Forgot how bad Sun Yang’s dive is. Jeez.
