Underwhelming Australia.. (Also bad luck for C1 out)

If Seebohm does not win tomorrow, no medal golds, has this ever happened? (Strongest olympic even by far, 7th place from Semis Hosszu time is better than Bronze time at Rio)

In ’96 Atlanta, it took Aussies until Day 7 to finally strike gold (Susie O’Neill and Kieren Perkins).

Well.. but if Seebhom does not win.. it is over, no other Aussie can win gold

Mixed 400 Free Relay? Yes, on paper USA beats them. On paper.

A lineup of Dressel – Manuel – Comerford – Adrian will probably beat whatever the Aussies have to offer at this time. They will have a better shot with C1, C2, McEvoy, and Chalmers in 2 years.

Cartwright is giving me more hope for the future than McEvoy at the moment.

25 Medals – after day 6 !!! Impressive

Ankoor Biswas

Make that 12 golds. The US women just won the water polo title.
