This mental issue really haunted Australians in London. Campbell seems to have a good attitude towars expectations and racing. And her time? Just wow! I’m sure Kromowidjojo is fully aware of what is happening in down under.

Magnussen splitting 23.96 and 24.5 for the 100 while his coach says he’s in very heavy training, wow. Can’t wait for worlds

I expected big things from her since early 2008 when, at only 15 yo, she beat Trickett in 50 and Coughlin in 100. But then she had too many illnesses.
I love how she swims although I hate her start (0.83 RT for a sprinter??).

I hope she finally wins individual gold in Barcelona, either 50 or 100 or both.

Get Campbell to spend few months on a sprint clinic with Jacco Verhaeren, and she’ll be swimming 52.5 already
