Consistency is everything in the sprint backstroke for women. Was recently watching the 100back semis from London Olympic games on you tube and it was brutal, 11sub 60s swims, 8lanes in the final; it will take a very fast time to make kazan and rio Olympics finals for women 100back, it’s one of the most competitive events on the women program, being under 1min isn’t allow that special anymore, 59.00is the new 1min; Franklin, Seebohm, Nielsen and Hosszu, Wilson being the swimmers I’m certain will make the final, the last 3spots will be anyone’s guess, however any slight error from big guns will see them in lane 8 dare I say locked out
