In your 2016 world ranking, you listed Johanna Roas swam a 28.62 in 50m breast at German Championships.
I’m sure it’s a mistake, otherwise it’s a new WR by almost a second.

ASF, I bet she’s been going faster and faster on breaststroke … but yes it was backstroke 🙂 Thanks for the spot

The world may be changing in terms of when fast swims are delivered, but I would still venture to suggest that a May 1.05 signals a contender for everything.

Bohl is the real darkhorse every time she has swam this year her times have improved …her father is also a highly respected swim coach in Australia . Should be a cracking race ….
