All of these times are very very fast, but especially C1’s 53.00
are you kidding me?

Also Seebohm’s 59.3 deserves special mention, and I hope she can bring her best at the Final either in Kazan and Rio.

C1 is actually ridiculous. 53.00 in the midst of full training… all the other girls might as well go home. She went 52.33/52.34 last time, I wouldn’t be surprised if she took Steffen’s supersuit WR. Seebohm’s time also points to a good battle with Franklin for the 100m title.

Emma McKeon went a 2:11 flat in the 200 fly as an extra in the race… she may be better off sticking to 200 distances for individual events

Nah we need Emma for depth in100 fly and free

With Verram on this one; 200FS – yes, 200FLY – no way. Let’s see where she can go over the 100FLY. The 200FLY is a “killer” physically and she’s likely to have a busy enough schedule with rounds of 100FLY & 200FS plus all 3 relays. I don’t see that 2.11 as being anything significant.

On a slightly different note, it’s good to see the development of the relationship between AUS & JPN Swimming. Both being sufficiently strong enough to make it “meaningful” but both with some significant depths and gaps in their program that both can see mutual benefits
