I wanted Horton to break Thorpe’s textile WR, but not anymore.

This win over Sun Yang is among the most satisfactory swims I’ve watched.

Detti 3rd. Dark horse as I saw after the european in London.

Gutsy win from Hagino, major cudos also to Kalisz who really made him earn it. Seto left in no mans land for the latter third of the race.

Solid swims by Litchfield, Litherland & TFH …. and Mahoney. Litchfield’s performance possibly a bonus for GBR & 2 finalists certainly above expectations for AUS

The timing system at Rio website is down since the finish of men 400 IM… grrrr…

Hosszu: The swim of the games?

Bad Anon

Hosszu 4.26.36; crushes He’s record!!!!
Another miss for Miley

Bad Anon

Judging from Hosszu’s 4.26 I think she has the endurance to be the favourite in every race she’ll swim. Seebohm should take notice for the 100m back tomorrow

Rio timing is back

So happy for Cate Campbell!!!!!

McKEon had me worried with her 53.3 split.

Cate is just astonishing.

Oleksiak has just won her first major medal, first of many more to come.

Canada has just ended 40 years drought.

Gutsy anchor by Ledecky but Aussie girls were a class apart! 3.30.65WR!!!!!

And by the end of the first day, Australia already exceeded their gold tally in London lol

After first final of swimming; no gold for team USA…
mmmmmmm

aswimfan

Again, it is scary to think how good Oleksiak will become if she keeps improving.

Having just turned 16, she split 52.7 in 4×100 and swam 56.7 in 100 fly.

Almost like if you combine Sjostrom and C Campell into one swimmer.
