World 100m backstroke champion Jeremy Stravius leap-frogged two of the top three finishers at Gaul’s nationals this year with a 48.53 victory in the curtain-closer 100m freestyle of the Canet International and the 2013 Mare Nostrum Tour in southern France this evening. Great for Stravius, stupendous for France and its chances of following up Olympic 4x100m free gold at London 2012 with world gold in Barcelona next month

After the latest appearances of French sprinters, I started to wonder whether Agnel is needed at all this year? France can build up a decent quartet anyway.

I hope so much that Katinka “Iron Lady” Hosszu has patience to focus on only a couple of events. If she swam “only” 200 IM, 400 IM and 200 BU, she would have at least one rest day between the events in Barcelona. FINA Swimming World Cup is approaching so she can return to her trademark shortly after the World Championships.

Pedersen, Ottesen. Looking very good.

I think French are now favorite to win men 4×100 free.
They have slightly better depth than the Aussies.
