So early in the season and Sarah already 56 mid.WR in the making…

Craig Lord

DDias, such build up moments suggest that the break will come on the clock at some stage though important to note that the same speed was there in ‘minor’ meets last year and in years before that, too. Minor moments: it will rely on getting everything just right… major moments same thing but under pressure and often with several other targets on the schedule.

Bad Anon

Not to sound negative but it looks like Sjostrom is stuck at 56mid thereabouts. doesn’t look like she will threaten the world record, will be surprised if she goes faster than 56,4 in Kazan, in high pressure situations, some wilt under pressure and end up swimming their “default” times, also worried about Seebohm as well. Very fast inseason and not any faster at the big meets ; its a worrying trend.. …

It only matters when it matters !

seebohm has swum fast at the big meets – did well at comm games and pan pacs last year. even in the 2012 olympics, she swam a near WR time… only in the heats rather than the final

Craig Lord

Indeed, Tim, but not a bad thing for swimming to be reported more than once every four years…

Sarah ALWAYS swim extremely fast in season.
If you go back from 2010, her year’s best times were often swum in low-key meets in season.

Remember where/when she swam that staggering out of this world 24.40 last year?

aswimfan

I agree with anon, Seebohm swim fast in major meets, ever since her 2007 worlds.
But yes, she often swim fast in the wrong heats: swam faster in 2007 Melbourne relay rather than individual, faster in 2008 Beijing relay than individual (in fact, faster than bronze time), faster in the 2012 London prelims rather than final.
