Will Lacourt every get back to his 2010 form with a 52.11 and a 24.07 at Europeans? I hope so!

I highly doubt it….has never looked the same.

His last sub 53 occured in 2012 (52.75) before London. But on the dash everything remain possible. If ever he is pushed by Manaudou….

Lacourt getting back in 2010 form would also be great for France’s 4 x 100m medley relay, though they also have Stravius and Stasilius. Both Metella (?, I’m sorry, I don’t think it’s spelled correctly) and Stravius can take the butterfly leg, and Gillot/Stravius the free style. What France desperately needs in a breaststroker that’s fast and reliable. Has Perez-Dortogna ever been under the minute?

Perez-Dortona has a PB on 1’00″38 (Berlin 14)

That 52.11 is still fresh on my mind, that’s how great that swim was. So smooth and yet so fast. Just an incredible swim.

Look for Jean Dencausse in breaststroke! A 17 years old french swimmer who is getting closer and closer to the high level (a PB of 1’01 something in LCM).
And he comes from my former modest club (Tarbes)! So I’ll keep supporting him! 🙂

He’s on the move and seeking out tough opponents, Jaki: http://www.swimvortex.com/breaststroke-bonanza-ahoy-continental-foe-face-peaty-murdoch-jamieson-willis/
