Why is Gyurta not a champion of consistency?

World champ (by a healthy clip), s/c European champ while coming back against Jameison’s British record and undefeated on the world cup tour.

Daniel’s winning streak is very impressive – standout. That was not what the consistency award was looking at… It was chosen on the basis of number of quality times in best event throughout the season and No of this that and up in 10 best performances for the year. Magnussen and Sprenger stand out. Daniel has 2 entries in the 10 best perf’s 2013 and got inside 2:10 four times. Long-course, global reigns over all other efforts … s/c euros not comparable in that context.

Good list.

On my list the best race of the year is Men’s 4x100m freestyle relay at Barcelona. At the 3rd change there was four teams within only four tenths of a second, every on of them having a good shot at victory. It must have been the first time a relay is so tight at this level. Normally just one or two teams are fighting for gold.

2011 worlds the medley relay was quite close.. four top teams were separated by ,83 seconds.. and only because JPN did not have a good freestyler.. otherwise JPN could have won and the time difference much closer..
