Among the women sprinters, Kromowidjojo’s start is noticeable faster than everyone else. It’s no wonder she has always been a consistent medallist in 50 free/fly in the past 5 years,


Regardless of anything else, Hosszu is the most professional swimmer out there. She always give it 100% every.single.time.

I think that applies to many, not just one, aswimfan, it is just that not everyone can go close to best almost.every.single.time


Govorov is insane!


22.73 a new World Textile Best 🙂


Joanna Jackson keeps going on and on about the Netherlands being the Olympics 4×100 free champion. I guess she completely missed 2012 London.


Govorov’s 50 fly was beautiful and powerful. It’s a pity he doesn’t seem to be able to hold it for a second 50. Or maybe there will be some progress in his 100?

Govorov’s body position was incredible. Resembled a hydrofoil at times.

Today 3.44.01 is highly encouraging for Detti’s chance to medal in the 400 free also at Olympics:

1) After Primaverili, both Detti and Paltrinieri have resumed the usual massive training under the guidance of Morini.
Swimming 3.44.01, i.e. about the same time swum at Primaverili, still more unrested than Detti was at Primaverili, is a great signal of consistency and hints at good chances of improvement for Rio.

2) Detti has swum a negative-split (1.52.07 at 200) and his lone 50 over 29″ has been the fourth 50, when Stjepanovic slew down and so did Detti, who followed him.
The great power displayed in the second half of the race shows how Detti was capable to split faster at 200, if it was necessary, and have a better final result.

And, for Detti, the real taper has to arrive…
