Ok raise hand among you who thought Seebohm would come home empty handed?

I thought she had chances for 3 gold. It’s a big surprise.

Coventry finishes ahead of Franklin and Seebohm.

Updated list of current world champions shut out of medals:

Emily Seebohm (100 and 200 back)
Mitch Larkin (100 back)
Ning Zetao (100 free)
James Guy (200 free)
Marco Koch (200 breast)
Camille Lacourt (50 back world champion and worlds silver in 100 back)
Laszlo Cseh (200 fly)
Kanako Watanabe (200 breast)

The latest change is to add 200 back to Seebohm’s name.
At least Larkin avoided the same tragic fate.
