Trimetazidine helps with endurance.

It will be interesting to see how this will affect Yang’s 1500

roy

if trimetazidine is helping him, he should be close to his world record of 14:31

i,ve noticed that long distance swimmers especially in the 1500 meters rarely aproach their best times.grant hackett never aproached his 14:34 again,he is the greatest long distance swimmer in my view(i,m not talking about open water swimmers).katie ledecky might aproach her 15:28 though.

roy,

Sun Yang -presumaby- has stopped using trimetizidine since he got caught last year. He took trimietizidine in the years he swam 14:30s. That’s why I said it will be interesting to see his 1,500 results now that he is not taking trimetizidine.

Roy,

Grant Hackett never swam 1,500 in ideal condition again after 2001 Fukuoka.

He did not have to fully taper during Australian trials in 2002-2005. In 2004 Olympics he swam with partial collapsed lung. In 2007 Melbourne he just came back from injuries and one year off swimming. In 2008 beijing he was too old and intoxicated on stilnox already.
2005 Montreal should have been almost ideal for him to attack the WR, but he had swum too many events already (200, 400, 800 and the relay) and both Larsen Jensen and David Davies did not exactly give him the hard push.

i dont think sun yang,s results will be good in the short term bcos of his training. i have doubts about his new coach,dennis coterell is no longer his coach,and he isn,t allowed to train in australia. i,m surprised by the times he,s putting up now,the times are not too bad considering all the stuff that,s going on around him.

roy

and i dont think sun yan will ever approach that world record even if he were taking a newly invented super drug to help with endurance,that world record is too crazy.he almost went 14:30.a sub 14:30(14:29) is a really crazy time to achieve.

roy,

Sun Yang has been training in Australia with Brian King.
He is only banned from training podium centers, ie. clubs who receive funds from Australia Swimming
