Velimir Stjepanovic chatting to Georges Kiehl at the 2016 Euro Meet after two wins and a 48.5 100m free

The relative rest inherent in spending a few days at a meet gave us a glimpse of the speed and strength gathering in Mireia Belmonte and Velimir Stjepanovic at the Euro Meet in Luxembourg.

The closing session witnessed a 51.40 from Laszlo Cseh in the 100m butterfly, but the supertrouper drew the gaze to Stjepanovic, the Serbian based at Hamilton Aquatics in Dubai: after a 3:48 in the 400m freestyle a stunning moment: 48.50 in the 100m freestyle.Stjepanovic who dominated the race, opn 3:48 by the close of business

48.50 in the 100 free (after a 3.48.70 in 400 free..) by Stjepanovic is, in my opinion, the most stunning performance of the meeting.
In the 100 free Stjepanovic has showed a great potential indeed (24.97 last 50m).
I would have no doubt to focus on 100 and 200 free, instead the 400 free, race in which Stjepanovic is European champion, yes, but that he swims in a non-convincing way: “go out fast and try to hang-on”.


I think the 200 is his race. There is no reason to think he can not enter 1:44 territory, which is good enough for an Olympic medal these days


I agree. His 200 will be FAST.
