I love your title!

I think Cate Campbell can take both titles, if she’s healthy. Remember, this is the girl who won 50 free olympics bronze at the age of 16.

I agree. I think this meet could break Cate huge worldwide

The picture of Cate with her sister above tells it all. She’s just well ahead of the rest, in every sense of the word. Many assesses the 100m to become a tight race. I don’t buy it. In my book Cate will show us such superiority over her opponents that is only rarely seen in 100m final.

Experience tends to be of great value in 50m though. It’s the chance for others to respond and I believe Dutchwoman will be successfull in doing so.
