Interesting how some Japanese swimmers systematically improved as the Mare Nostrum sequence progressed. I hope that doesn’t mean that they are tapering at this moment. Interesting contrast with Great Britain, whose swimmers returned to training after Barcelona.
Mr. Seto is very impressive. Mr. Hagino’s performances are somewhat unpredictable.
