Pellegrini Purrs Back To Foro Italico Den To Face Sjostrom In 200m At Energy For Swim

Clash of freestyle queens old and new - Sarah Sjostrom, right, and Federica Pellegrini

Does it matter whether it turns into a blistering battle between the two women who hold sway on the world-record books from 50 to 200m freestyle or whether it provides one last glance of Federica Pellegrini Vs Sarah Sjostrom in that place where both have excelled in world waters under the watchful gaze of centurions and gladiators on the plinths lining one of the most glorious swimming arenas in the world? No, not really. Either way, a great moment ahead

Is the format LC?

Craig Lord

Yes, LC, Ger.

Which makes it a very interesting race. I’m thinking more of what Sjostrom can do in the form she has been in this year, and how that will transfer through to a 200m free when the focus has been specifically on the sprints. With the conditioning there from previous seasons and without the demands of championship racing, we might see something very fast.

As long as she remembers to breathe sometime in the first 50 or so 🙂

It would have been a tad more exciting if Ledecky would be in the race as well and Emma McKeon… The women’s 200free for me was by far the most exciting race to watch in Budapest!!!!
