Add to those names, Cameron McEvoy, who’s actually more than two years younger than Morozov, and yet almost as fast in the 100 (48.0).

You are correct, we are either in the middle of golden age of sprinting or at the dawn of it.

I didn’t include McEvoy because I was looking at the 50/100 guys, but your point about his 100 skill is well taken. Going to be an era to enjoy for sure.

That’s too bad Vlad couldn’t represent the US, but I wouldn’t count him out of the medals or the victory. He always seem to out perform expectations. I thought all the SCY swimming that he wouldn’t do much in the 100m free and then he drops 47.93 earlier this season.

Not only men sprinting, but it’s the women sprinting too that enjoys golden age.

We are in the midst of great rivalry between Cate and Ranomi, and not only that, but Herasimenia, Steffen and Halsall are also surging, while we also have younger up and coming of bronte, simone, etc.
