Craig it is only an impression or conger went past the 15m limit?

Rafael. Yes it seems conger went past the 15 meter limit.
I think an Italian who broke the Italian junior record in the 100 backstroke earlier this year ( Craig I can,t remember his name) also went past the 15 meter limit in his swim.

roy

I just remembered his name. The Italian swimmers name is Simone sabbioni. 18 years old this year.

Rafael

If both did, they should be DQ

USA ‘s time in men’s 400 free relay is not break the meet record. The WUG record is 3:10.88 in 2013 by Russia.

Al

wrong order on the relay (on the official result sheet – thanks for heads up … ED)

It was Weitzeil, Vreeland, Locus, Neal

Didn’t see it, Rafael, so couldn’t comment.

Craig you can watch the race video here:

From the angle of the camera is does indeed look like he went past 15m.

Thanks comp’conquered… certainly looks dodgy and one of those moments, perhaps, where the wash was more powerful that the spectacles of the deck-side judges … 🙂
