I don’t know if Adrian will necessarily swim much faster than his semis swim. He left nothing to chance in the semi and had the luxury of no distraction on the lane 8.

He will be in lane, next to Chalmers and McEvoy.
He will be prone to overswim the first 50 trying to keep up with mcEvoy while knowing that Chalmers will come home like Shinkansen and rein everyone in.
