When it comes to a four card straight flush in freestyle a struggle begins normally on the shorter end of distances. Horton dealt successfully with that part, meaning his four consecutive titles in terms of distance begin to look possible.

Anyway, I consider the same achievement in senior level almost impossible in modern-day swimming. To be sure, Sun Yang could have a chance this year but if Agnel dives back into pool seriously, it was also his last chance. A five card straight flush, or even a four event straight flush starting from 50 or 100m, are unachievable. 🙂

Ruta Meilutyte also swam 50m butterfly, get to the semifinal in no. 5 (27.29)

She will be racing in 7 events: 50, 100m free, 50, 100m breast, 50m back, 50m fly, and 200m IM. Wow!
