Magahey has at least a 4:03 in him after fixing his stroke & more years at UGA, if not faster

Great underwaters off the walls, terrible first stroke and breath. In particular comparing him to Kieren. He practically stops. Agree, he has a lot of room to be faster!

2nd fastest in history, fastest freshman ever, not tapered, only getting faster. Change something probably isn’t a great idea. He is doing just fine. Let the technique discussion go. Clearly, it isn’t hindering him. If you don’t like how it looks, that’s your problem, not his.

Not attacking you, but the ugly technique point is getting old.

What imbecile was handling the camera on that 500? That was really embarrassing. Sounded like a great race, though!

They should’ve linked the UGA swimming youtube account. It gets the full race

It’s the Texas A&M channel, so they frame their swimmers

Edit: nvm I’m wrong

I’m sorry but whoever filmed that 500 should be ashamed. Don’t care if they were filming for a different school, still shoulda gotten that finish.

How about you go look at the UGA YouTube page for the video of the finish.

A Texas a&m YouTube account is going to show the full races of a&m swimmers not zero in on a UF and UGA swimmer
