I’ve heard that the South African athletes going to Kazan may have to pay their own way. Is there any truth to that rumour?

And, as LeClos losing, I’d be shocked if he’s even halfway rested or shaved.

Garbage time for Le Clos. For someone that goes 1:41 for 200m free short course 1:47.89 is terrible for long course . Really hope he’s not rested for the meet …

Yes really dissapointing times at this meet . he hasn’t done a personal best in lc in like forever. Its as if he has hit a platue in lc. Compared to SC he was improving his times everyday.

You can fake SCY or even SCM, but it is impossible to fake LCM.

Le Clos’ LCM results in the past two years are indeed worrying.
Has he put in the necessary work to defend both titles in Kazan?

We’ll see… dum…dum…dum…

Not sure how you fake improvement? Not sure if he’s cared about any LC meets since last worlds. Not sure if he really cares about anything else than making easy money sc (since his country offers no support) & winning the Olympics.
