Unfortunately the result is as expected after yesterday news. I hope there will not be any more withdrawals in the final month before Kazan starts.

See you in Rio “little” big man.

Little big man – very good, TommyL 🙂

So terrible. I hope he recovers well.
And I truly truly hope he gets that elusive gold in Rio.

Too bad, so many withdrawals for Kazan. I hope all the swimmers will be healthy for Rio though.

It is very unfortunate for kosuke, japan and for swimming, we will miss an excellent show. Since the Brazilian Ricardo Prado won the 400 IM in a world championship we have not seen a little man do it again. Ricardo had 1.68 m tall and it was amazing to see him beat the big men.
