Sjostrom on struggle bus this evening in finals, swimming as though she may be having a medical condition (no inhaler meds?). 1:59.59 200 Free for 2nd place (stroke and breathing looked brutal), followed by a 1:00.04 100 Fly for 7th place. She won 50 Free in 24.65, but nowhere near the 24.01 she swam here two years ago. Hosszu not strong either, will be interesting to hear comments/reports coming out of the meet.

Something was amiss with Sjostrom in the 100 fly. She had no traction at all.

I was at the meet, and I agree. A 7th place shocker. She also looked way off in her 200 Free, her stroke and breathing were all out of sync as she finished in second at 1:59, really collapsed in the last 50. Very strange.

She wasn’t much better in 200 free right before 100 fly and may still was under the influence of her disappointing lost at last meters. She has to stay firm with her decision to forget about 200 free 😀

I agree she should drop the 200. Gone are the days where the same swimmer could do well at the same meet in distances 50 to 200. Too much specialization nowadays. Too many heats, too.

I think it was the 50Bk and 200Fr in the previous 10 minutes. Still 60.04 coming back in 32+ is really bad for someone that good. Obviously a training meet though. She did four finals in what 30 minutes?

I’d say the manner was more concerning than the result. I wasnt there, but even watching through a stream you could tell she looked like a different swimmer in the water. I can’t believe it was purely as a result of being in a heavy block – Really odd. Perhaps she was trying things out…

Sjostrom peaked in 2017. It’s hard to stay at the very top across an Olympic cycle. She can certainly still win some golds at worlds but I don’t expect her to do as well as last time. Hozzsu is not doing that bad considering she has been living out of a suitcase. Her best bet is still the IMs and oddly her backstroke is really off compared to when she won gold and silver in Rio. Definitely need to drop the whole Iron Lady shtick and maybe consult with PHelps who figured out how to win multiple gold at a late age.
