It has to be said the picture quality of the live coverage of the Canet Mare Nostrum has been top class. The British commentary from the South of France has been a credit to the broadcasters.
I think British Swimming could learn a few lessons from this annual meet in broadcasting the British Championships either through live streaming or selling the rights to a broadcaster.

Slightly off-topic . Who knows what has happened to the FINA’s web site? It is under maintenance for so long already. Was it a bomb, or some natural disaster like flood or FIFA’s scandal (coincided perfectly)? 🙂

Craig Lord

Whatever the reason (and we have to assume its legitimate), Yozhik, much that should be there for the sake of constant transparency is not there. Maintenance and updates and even a complete restructure can be done without taking the whole website down, which they have, barring world champs essentials (many of them past the deadline anyway)

@Roger Carlin: do you know if archives exists or races can be found on youtube for those who missed live streaming? Thank you.

I know this sounds childish … (ED: yes, it did sound childish, and too much like a schoolyard joke that laughs at people not with them – your remark was apt to cause unnecessary hurt hence the edit, thanks for understanding)

Things are really starting to shape up this season.

Great racing on day two. The one thing we have to watch out for is most swimmers are in different stages of their preparation, and it can be a little deceiving.

Some great swimming for Ryan Lochte, in what would normally be a somewhat sluggish performance in training. Perhaps the lighter load is benefiting him at the moment. I would imagine he is not rested, so he can be proud of that.

Hosszu was not as jaw dropping as a few had mentioned she’d might be, but I also believe she was slightly ill.

Great swims from Miley, especially that breast leg on the 400 IM. powerful stuff.

The two breaststroke aces both male and female seem to be at the top of their game, 26.8 on the 50 is monstrous, and anytime a woman can dip under 30 seconds its super as well.

Good effort from Jaz, although all efforts over 16 minutes seem out of touch with KL’s performances these days.

The 100 free was special in that they were both won by Team Orange.

Nice result for Lazslo Cseh in all the fly’s basically. He is really having a good go at getting to the top of the pile there. Strange to see Le Clos not on the podium in the 200, but I also do believe he has just come off an altitude camp in Doha.

We are in for an exciting summer…

roy

sprinterSA what about kosuke hagino and ryosuke irie?

SprinterSA

@Roy – Both showed solid performances as well. In fact, both guys have been incredibly consistent when they swim, putting up solid in season times. I cannot remember the last time Kosuke Hagino swam a poor time, relatively of course.

roy

I can,t remember the last time irie swam a 1:56 in the 200 back.

Craig Lord

Outside of heats, it was January 2014, Super Series in Perth, Roy

roy

Craig thanks for the info. Just shows that irie is almost always in the 1:54/1:55 range in the 200 back.

Great swim from Hannah Miley – outstanding BR leg. Hosszu will be hard to beat in Kazan but Miley now looks a challenge for Gold.

Carlin also looks good to medal in Kazan – she should be realistically aiming for 2 silvers in the 400/800m free?

And as is becoming the norm, Peaty and Meilutyte producing masterful swims – both are only a handful of Breaststroke sprinters that can produce Sub-27 and Sub-30 swims, respectively, in or out of championships.

The thing I am starting to notice from Japanese swimmers , they can swim consistently all throughout the year but when it comes to big , they never have big drops in their times compared to swimmers who might not be consistent all year , but are training towards the big meets.
