Good article Craig. I think Ajna Kesely (born 10-09-2001) tapered a bit for this race, Boglarka and Katinka didn’t because they are “protected” as you wrote, too. Katinka is swimming all of the events, Boglarka takes part in 200-1500 free, 200 fly and 400 IM. Heavy training for them. Back to Ajna. She swam 4:22.92 in 2013, 4:17.16 in 2014 and till yesterday her best was 4:07.90 from December 2015. All these times were Hungarian age group records, the last one was a record from 14 to 16 years of age. Yesterday she swam the record of age-class 17 (and 6th place in the world ranking) too, that belonged to Eva Risztov with 4:07.24, back from 2002. I think Ajna and Boglarka will swim the 400m and 1500m (she swam 16:14.35 on Wednesday, age group record 15-17 and 5th place in the actual ranking) in Budapest and I’m waiting for the 200m and 800m too.
