Wishing both girls the best…

It would be great if she gets to medal in this race, after Ms. Sjoestrom and Ms. McKeon. And it would also be great if Australia manages to give stiff competition to the other teams in the 4x200m freestyle relay.

Per published article in Swimvortex, Sjoestrom has confirmed she will not swim individual 200 free in Kazan.

Personal Best

So happy she gets a chance at an individual event after 2012’s 100 free.

I remember at the time of the Aussie trials a suggestion that she was not focusing on the 200 free this year; she still managed a solid time.

Hope she impresses, at least herself. Would give her greater confidence leading to next year.
