Commonwombat: was easy to preview that Australian’s choice to go with Jack and Titmus in 200 free instead of Tamsin Cook was.. bizarre.

Cook is clearly a 200-400 freestylers, widely the better australian 200 freestyler here: after the 400, would have been simple keep her fresh for today’s 200 free (and for an exciting clash with Ruck and Cox), instead that unproductive 1500 free of yesterday.

Experiments?
A Cook’s desire to suffer swimming that 1500..lol?

Did Cook not swim 200 free in Australian age group champs?

And yes, given her form in Singapore, she would have started second favorite after Ruck.

Bizarre decision indeed, although not as insane as Michael Andrew’s.
