Yes, couldn’t agree more.

It’s so intriguing to see the times what elite swimmers are capable of executing in short course pool while they’re still at almost their peak. I predict the whole bunch of new textile bests of which many are also world records. I hope many of the Barcelona medalists use the possibility for late entry if not signed up for the meeting on time.

A new scoring system seems to be favourable for the likes of Hosszu as it lays more emphasis on acquiring podiums. I hope we see many tops attending unusual events as a result of the new system.
