In yesterday’s ‘pageants in the pool’ there was an award for swim photo of the year.

For me, the picture above of Meilutyte’s start should be the run away winner. It’s a potentially iconic image of sporting progress, as a young star brings something to the table which no else has.

I think Horton’s most impressive swim was the 1:45 split he did in the men’s 4×200 relay in Dubai, although the relay didn’t win the gold.
