She’s just been throwing down performance after performance this season. The WR is under very serious threat. With the fine tuning yet to come, I think she will do it.

Kromowidjojo made a mistake in the heats (9th). In the B-final she did better: 53.42, her fastest time this year.

They talk of such a thing as one’s “window of opportunity” and it would appear this period running through to include Worlds is SS’s such window to take down either or both the 50/100 free WRs. She’s been at a level of consistent excellence for some year in these events but its been her fly that has record breaking.

Now, with a much streamlined competition program with no 200free nor freestyle relays, she seems to have both form and opportunity.

Thanks for the alert, Jos 🙂
