In Mare Nostrum barcelona, m200 fly has a thrilling finish, but Le Clos didn’t have to work that hard if only he took the race seriously (ok exaggeration) from the start.

It’s frustrating that Le clos still relies on looking left and right to give him motivation to swim faster.

FINA and FIFA don’t care about the cost of relocating the general population to make way for the various games, and they certainly do not care about human rights. FINA, like FIFA is more concerned with their fancy blazers, chauffeured limos to and from events, their per diems, and whatever else they can glom from the host country.
