1:59?? after a 1:54.9 in the fly?
I’m sensing an upset brewing in the 200fly in the next 13 months. Cseh has returned to his previous heights in the 200IM in textile, if he does so in the 200fly, he could be more than LeClos can handle.

MP

john26… I don’t quite get what you mean. You say that he has reached his heights again in the IM and if he does so in the Fly he could be a danger? Surely you mean the opposite? 1.54 in the fly is his textile best. 1.59 or 1.58 he did this year is certainly not his IM textile best as he did 1.56…

MP

Outstanding swimmer. Best in Europe ever. A decade of top performances, year after year. Humble and respectful. A class act without equals in our Continent and still at the very top of his game with his magnificent 1.54 in the Fly yesterday

Ger

Just a swim down, Which is convenient as there’s no actual swim down pool at the venue just yet.

So Cal Swimmer

I agree with MP. “Humble and respectful”. Most certainly a man to look up to.

How rested would Lazslo be 30 days out of Kazan?

If the answer is, “not too much” then it makes his efforts all the more impressive.

Ger

His chances just got better in the IM if Hagino’s withdrawal is confirmed.

MP, what I was saying that is to be able to to 1:54 in the 200fly while in the shape to swim a 1:59 200IM is amazing given that Cseh, at his best, is a 1:56low 200IMer. His set of performances suggest that his could swim his 200fly time set in a lzr (1:52.7)– just as he was able to do so in the 200IM.

Cseh is amazing. One of the all time greats. Respect!

MP

John 26. clearer now. Thanks for the explanation and I agree with you. Fly and IM clash in the programme however and he and Seto will have to be at their best to win or medal in both.

MP

Ger – You forget Lochte, Seto, Dwyer and others. Hagino is not out anyway. Not yet and least
