What’s the fastest 100 fly textile time then, if this 48.8 beat the 48.82 of Le Clos in SC worlds?

that is the best textile ever. i had it as No 1 and No2 … it is No 1 in textile 🙂 Korotyshkin has two times faster, both in shiny suits

The result of the 50 Free changed three times. First the scoreboard had Schoeman winning, then Ervin, then finally Morozov. I was in the stands and Morozov clearly won and was way more than 1/100th ahead of Schoeman (although, admittedly my seat wasn’t in line with the finish). My guess is the timing failed and as they seem to do when adjusting results they concocted a time a fraction ahead of someone whose time they did actually get.

What a mess… thanks for the insight
