Zsu Jakabos Adds Win in Eindhoven

Day 3 of the 2013 Eindhoven Cup in the Netherlands saw fast times continue to go on the board

Hungarian Zsu Jakabos continued a great meet by running away with the 200 fly in 2:07.66. That’s the fastest time in the world outside of China this year. Great Britain’s Jemma Lowe took 2nd in 2:09.64.

One day after breaking the Swedish Record in the 200 IM, Simon Sjodin won the 100 fly in 53.26. That topped Russia’s Evgeny Korotyshkin, who was 2nd in 53.39, followed by Mike Marissen in 53.70.

Mireia Belmonte swam faster on the spanish championships.

(That was against her btw, she swam 2.07.38 there, Mireia went 2.06 something.)
So this is no4 on the world rankings. Lets wait till the Mesa Grand Prix and check those results.

So Rafael, you’ve seen every female swimmer on earth? I seriously doubt it.

Ms. Jakabos is an attractive young athlete (swimmer) but there are thousands and thousands of others too.

Trust me on that one.

I’ve long thought that Britta Steffen looked like the athletic version of actress Nicole Kidman. And it seemed like a lot of people were asking ‘who’s that babe in the Call Me Maybe video?’ in reference to Lauren Perdue.

On the men’s side, nothing I’ve seen has ever come close to the beefcake pictures of Ryk Neethling from the mid 00s.

I have no idea who is more attractive and honestly, I have never even thought about it. I don’t care either. I read SWIMSWAM to know about who is swimming fastest, coaching ideas, meet results and many other things.

I don’t rank swimmers on their looks and I can’t see what they look like with swimcaps and goggles on. It does not matter either. I rank them on how fast they can swim.

If I want to look at great looking females, there are millions of internet websites that have lots of photos of them.

Your comment is silly and juvenile.
