Yes. Netanya will bounce back. At least 2 new WR. One by each gender :).

I agree with TommyL.
2 WRs is too conservative. 3 WRs is more likely, methinks.

I think that there are going to be a lot more than just 3.

I think Hosszu is going to be extremely dangerous over the 100, 200 and perhaps the 400 should it be paced well (IM).

I think that the womans 100 fly will be close if not a WR, and should SS want to convert that LC time on 50 fly, should break the WR here

Koch is going to be fairly close on the 200 breast, while Peaty, should he be rested, might take down the 100 breast.

With his brilliant season thus far, how close can Paltrineiri get to Hacketts stunning 14:10. his entry time is only 6 seconds away.

That said, there might be a few mixed medley and free records should all competing nations have their A teams. I think we can look forward to a wonderful event.

BOOM! Hosszu 1 Down already, we haven’t even got to the end of the first session.
