Great Britain has become a powerhouse of male breaststroke swimmers. And it won’t be easy to qualify for the international competitions. Unlike in the Olympics, every Jamieson’s 200m race I’ve seen in the past two years reveals the same pattern: a lack of speed compared with rivals in the last 50 m. Perhaps he’s right, and focusing more on the 100 m might help him improve this component of the race. I think we’ve still not seen the best from Andrew Willis. And I also hope that Yamaguchi somehow returns to form. In think this time around Daniel Gyurta will find the competition fearsome.

Jamieson swam a scorching last 50 in London to snare that Silver. That’ll be the highlight of his career. Gyurta will be the man to beat still come Rio.

Murdoch will be the man to beat in Rio. His trajectory, given his age and his room for improvement, will put him ahead of Gyurta who like Jameson is on the downward slope. Of course there will be others, including the obligatory American, who will break through and provide very stiff competition.

I agree with Billabong, I am afraid Gyurta’s peak is over.
