“the British star held off Conor Dwyer to win in 3:57.78, with Dwyer next at 3:58.10”

Roy, be careful with this conversion. Ledecky swam today 1:41.05 scy that if to believe to SW conversion utility is 1:54.31 lcm. I wish it were so. This result is 2 seconds slower Franklin’s 1:39.10 shown in March. And where is Franklin in LCM?

At the recent European champs Orsi went more than half a sec faster than yesterday’s Adrian’s winning time, and almost 0.8 faster than his own time. That’s an eternity. Why is it than only Katinka can stay fast all the time?

I don’t know whose idea it was to put Greg Paltrinieri in a 400 free short course race, but he definitely was a fish out of water there, so to speak 🙂
