Thanks for this.

Kromowidjojo appears to be relaxed which is always a good sign, but her opponents it might be a cause for concern. In my book Campbell is invincible in the 100m but who knows what happens in the 50m. If Ranomi takes small details like starts as determinedly as Sebastiaan, as I expect is the case, Ranomi possesses an excellent shot at a victory. She had a superb start already in London.

I’d not be resentful at the outcome if Verschuren reached a podium position.

I don’t think Campbell in advance is the clear winner at the 100 metres. Ranomi also has swum times in 53 seconds in the past, and at the 50 metres she can do a 24.1.

Verschuren, in my opinion, is a really strong contender for a medal at the 100. In the past, he was better at the 200, but at that distance the concurrence is very strong.
