This one goes according to script

Will agree with BA, whilst they may think “I could have done this/that better”; I think they’ll both take these results.

They’re placed around where they expected/wanted to be in the “world order”; well placed amongst the likely contenders but without the dirty great big target on their back. They are very much in the medal picture.

Horton if he can escape from the demons of Kazan looking good for a medal ….i hope he smashes the Chinese drug cheat …..

Jaeger’s 3:43.79 is the new US m400 free textile record. The old one is 3:44.69 by Peter Vanderkaay at 2012 London.

Beachmouse,
Dwyer is the taller, if that helps. Dwyer also has a smoother stroke, but jaeger is the more tenacious one.

Hi this is my first post what a great website , i am a biased Aussie supporter of the sport of swimming.

Australia going into this meet hold down eight number one spots fastest times posted this year Olympic events.

Mcevoy 100 Free 47.04
Horton 400 Free 3:41:65
Larkin 200 Back 1:53:90
C.Campbell 50 Free 23.84
C.Campbell 100 Free 52 .38
Seebohm 100 Back 58.73
Hocking 200 Back 2:06 :49
Groves 200 Fly 2:05:47

While this means nothing come Rio it certainly leads to some optimism …

i expect us to loose some number one spots over the next 8 days , but first day out of the way and Horton stands tall ……..
Go Aussie Go
