Cate is incredible….
I hope she stays healthy all the way until after Rio

In post race interviews (via interpreters), Japanese winters expressed disappointment with their times. Hard to know at what point in their preparation they may be.

Will be VERY interesting to see what C1 & C2 may produce over 100m tomorrow given these 50FS times. Certainly sending out some powerful warning shots thus far in 2015.

Mild positives for AUS in W800FS with Ashwood delivering a strong response to Mann’s surge and finishing the stronger. Ditto with McKeown swimming sub 1.08 in 100BRS early season. Already a world-class 200 performers, they would dearly want her to continue to make further progress over 100.

McKeon E – looked very good 200FS, will be very interested in what she may swim at Trials. M100FS – expected 48mids, that’s what we got.

The coveted WR made an appearance in the lane of the winning Aussie 4×50 women’s relay team during the telecast. Is it an official world record?

commonwombat

Robert, that was explained as a “glitch” in their system. It may well be a best time for this event but given it’s current international status; we can make as little/much/nothing of it as we see fit. WILL say that that AUS line-up (maybe swapping Schlanger in for Elmslie) would be very hard to beat.

The women 200im will be one of the most competitive events leading up to rio. only in beijing it took a 2.10 to medal. it will take a 2.10 just to make the final. ye; hosszu; leverenz; dirado; belmonte etc. very stacked event

Interesting times and performances for this time of the year. I guess this is the first time in 3 or so years that Magnussen is not under 48 s in 100m freestyle for competitions at this stage. Wonderful Irie and Seto. It’d been intriguing if Seliskar had been there. Can anybody say who were the members of Australia teem B and Japan in the 4×50 m medley relay? I can’t figure out how Japan ended 4th.

I’m sorry; disregard the last sentence of my posting. I guess I was not careful enough reading.

Did the Campbells swim 50free at the Victorian championships? Having trouble finding the times.

john26

hmm wow. If thats the case, could we see 52mids tomorrow?

Mambo

Watching the 100 Free I was amazed at Magnussen’s last 15m. He took off! Methinks he has been doing a lot of finishing training. Time didn’t impress but those final meters certainly did.

Robert Traynor

Thanks for that info, commonwombat. I heard the commentators discussing the situation but missed the official verdict.

Mambo

Bronte Campbell’s rate of improvement is surely scary to Cate, Sarah, Ranomi et al. Her style is more McEvoy than Cate. A racer style for sure.
