South Africa is bringing a 19 yo swimming 2:11.65 to Rio.

Australia doesn’t even want a 17 yo swimming 2:09 and cold-heartedly crushed his Olympics dream.

I think the prelims in Rio will be easier than usual for top swimmers, because it will be only between the very top and the mediocres plus the fillers FINA B + the Eric Moussambanis

That is the unfortunate thing aswimfan.

The time is Fina A time, 2:11 is not slow, but how can Aus leave behind a youngster that is swimming 2:09?

As you have commented on the GB results pages, I believe that the stringent QTs are causing too much pressure
