That’s one crazy breaststroke lineup in Barcelona. I love marenostrum series especially during Olympics year. We are going to be pampered with some fine swimming next week with marenostrum and US pro series.

As for Horton, nowhere near embarrassing and serious an injury as Ryan Napoleon had in the lead up to London. Glad that he’s ok, but olympics bound swimmers need to be more careful; don’t want a Hagino cycle accident to repeat.


Craig the Brazilians will be there too. França and João. We will actually see the probable previews of 100 final of Rio except the US swimmers.

Thanks Rafael. What a line-up.

Unfortuantly when you analyse the results the Australians posted at there trials Mens Breastroke is a real weakness as is the Butterfly . Womens / Mens 400 I.M will be a struggle to see a finalist as well.
