amazing le clos can swim over 2 seconds off the textile world record but swim faster than all but two other people in history

the 200 fly is a very “top-heavy” event in the sense that there have been a number of very elite performers, but not much depth at that level. There is Phelps, then there are le Clos and Matsuda, then there’s everyone else as those are the only people to break 1:54.0
