Rio Champs Horton & Chalmers Meet In Middle To Top ‘Olympic Guns Vs Gen Next’

Mack Horton at the double - by Delly Carr / Swimming Australia Ltd

It was billed as the the battle of ‘Olympic big guns VS Gen Next’: a 200m freestyle shoot-out in the land of Ian Thorpe. It didn’t match the thunderous speed of Thorpey but in terms of racing, the show was a good one. In terms of who won: well, both really, for Mack Horton is both Olympic big gun – as 400m champion at Rio 2016 – and Gen Next as far as the 200m freestyle goes, while the only other man inside 1:47 on the day fell into the same category, Olympic 100m champion Kyle Chalmers, a 200m Gen Nexter.
