I still believe that her 400 was THE race of the championships.

Lane Four, yes… an amazing swim. Her coach rated it her best of the meet: http://www.swimvortex.com/gemmell-takes-asca-crown-for-pioneering-ledecky/ (shiny suit time got in the way of it being recognised for what it was…)

Next year that record is hers.

I agree.

The two best swims in Barcelona were actually not the WRs: Ledecky’s 400 and Campbell’s 100.
