Certainly makes Russia’s medley relay a lot more interesting. They could give Japan a run for the bronze. Russia was almost even with the US after the first two legs in London. Now with Popova and Chimrova their back half is looking a lot better. Japan as always has issues on the free leg. Denmark would look good too if Ottesen could swim both the fly and free legs.
