Santana had a HORRIBLE swim.. Fratus an average split.. same for de Lucca.. This team could deliver a 3:12 if Santana did not swim so bad..

If Santana Bounces back for Worlds.. it will be great.. the team has a great chance of going 3:10 with Cielo.

Also, happy for the girls.. they smashed the old SA record by almost 4 seconds on the 4×100 relay

Condorelli amazing with a 47,98 and Gabrich a 48,11 opening the relay.. both top5!

Jorge Bados

Karl Krug, from Canada, 47.98 in 1st position of his 4×100 freestyle relay. He reaches to Morozov this year!!!!!!!!

Men´s 4×100 free relay
Karl Krug (CAN) 47.98
Federico Grabich (ARG) 48.11
Both lead off men

jorge_aguado

The oficial results of the 4×100 free relay has Aguiler as lead off man but Federico Grabich swam first

felix

Condorelli 47.98

jorge_aguado

And the Canadian lead off was Condorelli not Krug

Jorge Bados

Yes. The order in the official website isn’t right. Condorelli, from CAN, 1st with 47.98

Santo Condorelli’s leadoff leg of 47.98 now puts him in contention in Kazan! New kid on the blocks! Looking forward in 3 week, Awesome day for the Canadians

What can be learned from day 1 is going too fast in the heats can be detrimental with slower times in the final. I’ve never seen someone like Franklin or Lochte swimming faster prelims than finals, Seebohm paid the price in London ; she’s now more conservative in the prelims ; hoping Coughlin takes valuable lessons to ensure her Olympic qualification in Omaha next summer

Bad Anon,

Coughlin is very experienced swimmer, I’m sure she knows that.
What Coughlin cannot fight to an extent is that older swimmers tend to require more time for recovery.
Therefore Dara Torres as very smart in swimming only ONE individual swim in Beijing, even though she also qualified for 100 free: she knows three rounds of 100 free would take toll on her older body.

And that’s why I’m not convinced Coughlin will qualify either in individual 100 free or back through brutal rounds of US trials.

It’s great to see that Brazilian swimmers are becoming more and more competitive in a number of events instead of just men’s sprints. It’s always good show, spectacle and atmosphere to have a competitive host in the Olympics.

Personal Best

Well, Coughlin is in her 30s, not 40s!
And as an athlete she is in peak physical condition.
However, point taken, it does take longer to recover than if she were a teen.

With some sprinters in their late 20s though (and doing well), it’s not impossible in the slightest for her to be able to compete with those younger than her.
