Ben Proud: 21.32. Commonwealth record, Aussie Cameron McEvoy’s 21.44 from a year ago sunk. One lap freestyle, day 5, British Championships. Sheffield’s Ponds Forge pool has seen some fast, world-class swimming down the years, including world records. This was the fastest a swimmer ever shifted through these particular waters. Indeed, in textile, only the 21.19 of Frenchman Florent Manaudou, coached by Proud’s new guide James Gibson to the Olympic crown in 2012, is faster. At 21.32, a time worth repeating, Proud is second-swiftest all-time in a two-way tie with Cesar Cielo*, the Brazilian who claimed the 2008 Olympic crown.
