Hope your head is OK Craig. The results service is infuriating and I’m not sure I understand the competition structure. Seems that the faster swimmers are in the B Finals or something like that. I’m sure I saw Ben Proud on a 49 but I can’t see it in the results any longer!

A cut, a bruise changing colour by the minute and a bump the size of a golf ball… but otherwise fine, Stirlo … Yes, infuriating… the B finals are in fact the A finals and vice-versa but showing wrong on results … and the A finals were there earlier (sure I saw them on phone as I waited for a head scan … and glad to hear you saw them too 🙂

The skins events were crazy… 2hrs in was the 50m breast event. Peaty cracked 5 x 27 sec swims (3 minutes between each race)

STIRLO

Really not sure I understand the skins concept to be honest?

Craig Lord

Thanks Debanks – can’t watch livestream in A&E 🙁 and the days are too short to trawl through it all to pick up results – the results service needs to work…

Craig Lord

A training exercise, Stirlo, for the most part. Can be good watching but often doesn’t quite click for me

Debanks

Get well soon Craig…

Stirlo, see if you can access the link. It’s quite entertaining if not incredible uncomfortable for the swimmers!

Get well soon.

Fast 200 from Carlin, definitely favourite for 2nd in the distance freestyle events this summer.

Good time by Simmonds. she’llama need 2.06mid at least to medal in Kazan

STIRLO

Craig, looks like the full result are now up, or more or less full anyway. I think there are a few swims missing from your rankings, especially in the women’s 100 fly where i think O’Connor, Kelly (pb) and Lowe all entered the top 10.

Craig Lord

Stirlo, got ’em … all in. thanks
