The words from the President of Sal in Feb 2015 were:
“During the meet, we signed a new technical exchange partnership with the Japanese. This is a world first.

The Japanese are better at the more technical strokes, we are better at freestyle. No one is the keeper of all knowledge. So to build a world best organization, we are in the business of exchanging and leveraging off similar like-minded individuals.”
The decision of Shinri sort of puts a dent in that concept. But hey all the way with Aus because we are the best….

I really hope this works. I, however, pray that the focus will be in the 100m races, where Japan needs Mr. Shioura the most, and not so much in the 50m where, in order to win, all the planets and stars must be correctly aligned. It must be very frustrating that ever since Beijing (when I started to follow internationally swimming closely), in practically every 4x100m medley relay Japan is first after breaststroke, second by a pico-femto-micron after butterfly, and second or third by 1-2 body lengths after freestyle. I know I am very frustrated! Anyway, I hope this is all for the best.

It does sound like this group in Europe focuses on 50 vs 100 free. Where does Katsumi Nakamura train? It would probably be helpful for Japan if he spent some time training with McEvoy!

McEvoy is more a 100m specialist , his 50m and 200m is ok but not world beating!

@Viva la Bang: I agree with you about McEvoy. I figured that if Shioura is going to specialize in the 50 it might be good for Japan if Nakamura specialized in the 100 like McEvoy to anchor their men’s medley relay.

I would think Marseilles is the best sprint group in the world, with Manaudou, Gilot, Bousquet, Metella, Lacourt and I think Mallet and Mignon train there as well.
