Just saw the men 50 free.

Impressive swim by Nathan. So Adrian is not injured after all.
There were much talks about Adrian’s shoulder injury to explain his disappointing 100 free.

Didn’t Mark Tonelli win a medal in this event in 1975?

Zhuhao, 16 yo, 51.3

I mean, we all know he was fast since early last year when he was still 14, but to keep on progressing and scorched 51.3 at 16 yo is stunning.

China’s woe in breast really prevents it from 4x100medley medal.

Australia serial tourists did not disappoint..

USA to easily take the medley relay. China has no breaststroke, australia no butterfly and England couldn’t even get a butterfly or a freestyler into either sf

aswimfan.. I think the old discussion, that you can´t go an amazing 50 and 100 at the same time (for men side at least) is actually proving to be true.. No one on the last years could pull the 50/100 double with Olympic or World medal times at the same meet
