Where do we find the results of the spanish open?

I think she just did enough to win 800 free. It’s pointless to chase the season leading time of 8.11, I am sure she could be around 8.15 at best

What was Zheng Wen Quah’s PB before this?
It seems coach Sergio Lopez didn’t waste too much time to get Singaporean swimmers elevate to the next level.

@ aswimfan: Quah’s PB before this was 1:59.01 clocked 3 years ago

Well she’s never going 8.11 bad anon. A great day for Singapore butterfly

FabIOS

Oh, sorry. Didn’t see the link with the results was already at the end of the article 😉

I’ve never heard of Sasha Touretski.. Is she really swimming for Australia?

aswimfan

Well her father is an Australian citizen, and she was born in Australia. Although it would be a little bit easier (an understatement) to represent Switzerland instead.
