If there is someone to follow among young swimmers then this is Penny Oleksiak. She doesn’t look like 13-15 years old puberty spark. But more like Snostrom-Ledecky phenomenon with her prime at late teens – early twenties. Her splits at both best 100 fs races look very promising with a lot of reserves. She is definitely gifted to swim under 53. Good professional coaching and training environment are the only things she is needed.
