Craig – Hagino has much more than a 49.96 in him. Last year right before the Asian Games at the Japanese Inter-University Championships he led off his Uni 4×100 Fr Relay with a 48.8.

Some range indeed.

Craig Lord

HKS. Thanks. I searched a year not all … even so, I have a 49.2 … could you please point me to that 48.8 … would need the specific split and result sheet.

I wonder if David mcKeon can shake off his reputation of “swimming fast at home, faltering when away”

Verram

That remains to be seen aswimfan……

john26

he was 3:44.0 at Commonwealths.

WKK

Craig Lord. Hagino registered a 48.75, (split 23.58) in 5 September 2014 in Kanagawa, Japan.

J26; Aswim’s comment re McKeon D remains valid. The time at CG was his best outside AUS but poor tactically as Cochrane swam off him. In the arguably bigger event (PP), he was well off the podium swimming 3.46. 2012 Olympics & 2013 Worlds – nowhere near qualifying for 400 final. His 2014 4×200 relay efforts were OK, prior to that – poor.

Craig Lord

Thanks WKK – can you point me to a result sheet/media report confirming that, please.

The times from the Australian team suggest that they are under very heavy training. Otherwise it’d be pretty worrisome. I was expecting a close battle between Natsumi Hoshi and Madeline Groves in the women’s 200m butterfly, but that did not happen. No mention of David Morgan in the 200m butterfly or of Mr. Sucipto in the 100m breaststroke.

I wonder who will be in the Japanese 4x200m freestyle relay team: Will it be Hagino, Sakata, Kobori and Matsuda, or will they replace Matsuda or Sakata with Daiya Seto? This relay is Japan’s chance to shine!

Almost exactly 2 years ago, Hagino swam 49.77 in 2013 Japan Open.

Craig Lord

Yes, aswimfan, we covered the meet. I have his best as 49.2. Readers tell us that he has been under 49 twice and that’s what I’m asking them to point me too.

Linny

I like a challenge so googled

Google 萩野公介

And then see page http://swim.seiko.co.jp/2014/S70401/ranking/05R036.pdf

No idea what the rest says but I can see 萩野公介 next to 48.75

I thank you!

Craig Lord

Great. Thanks Linny. name translations I can handle 🙂

Philip Johnson

This further solidifies Hagino is the best all-round swimmer today.

Danjohnrob

It’s pretty hard to argue against giving Hagino that title for the men anymore! The same must be said for Hosszu among the women.

aswimfan

I concur. Hagino among the men and Hosszu among the women are the best all-round swimmers in the world right now.
