Hope to see Andrew in the 1:01s again tomorrow in the 100 Breast but unfortunately I can’t see it happening anymore . Hard to believe that there’s a 15 year old in China going over a full second faster than that already !

Lizhuo is not 15,he was born in 1998 and he is 17 yo, as has been established in the other thread.

If I remember correctly Mr. Brown had some memorable races (won most, and was barely defeated Sun Yang) in the 400m freestyle in some of the Asian meets for the World Cup (short course). I hope he continues to progress steadily!
