Was Jordan Harrison saving strength for the 1500 freestyle, or is this a not so good year for him. If I remember correctly, other than Grant Hackett, many of Mr. Cotterell’s swimmers did not perform at the top in the Australian Nationals: Jordan Harrison and and Thomas Fraser Holmes come to mind.Perhaps they are training exclusively focussed on the Olympics?

@Craig: In the ranking it says Gregorio Paltrinieri is 21 y.o , but till September he’s still 20 😉

Verram

What’s happening with Jordan Harrison? He is going backwards instead of forwards..

Crannman

Jordan Harrison needs to fix whatever he is doing in training PRONTO. 8:10 even Untapered is none acceptable … That time isn’t even a second faster than Ledecky …

Craig Lord

His specific DOB recorded – 20 he is Fabio 🙂
