Mack horton will break 50 soon, he swam 49 low i think (albeit relay split) at junior worlds

I do hope sun has a shot at hacketts sc world record, to see a swim under 14 mins would be incredible, even if it doesn’t happen now, I think it will happen in the near future

Park Tae Hwan has already been under 49 and 15 min.

I think Park Tae-Hwan also belongs to that range club.

February 10-12 last year Park swam 22.74, 49.65, 1:46.78, 3:45.57, 14:47.38 over the same weekend. The most impressive of this was swimming 22 then half an hour later going 14:47. Nobody in history has ever done anything like that……

Did Ian Thorpe ever break 15:00? he was swimming 48.5 when Hoogie won in 48.1 in 2004, and also hit 7:39 in the 800

Craig Lord

No… he didn’t take one on after 2000… and back then he clocked 15:25.05

Not necessarily so.

I think to be an Olympic / world champ medallist in 5 events is a gold standard .

Phelps of course & also Thorpe ( 100-800 free 200 im ) Lochte .

To get 5 you need the whole freestyle range or wclass excellent at 2 strokes + im .

Not easy. Missy Franklin is at 4 & will need a distinct expansion to add another WC event. Not just a time but fronting up & earning a medal.

Shane Gould also did the 5 events thing… in one single olympics to boot.

Yeah with phelps, it was even more scary. His lead off in Beijing would have got him bronze in the individual 100 free, and his times in the 200 back could easily have landed him a medal at the games too. Crazy to think he was a medal contender over 100/200 free,back,fly + 200/400 IM
