What’s Ruta gonna do when she takes off the floats, pullbuoys, three dragsuits AND those 5000-pound weights on her wrists and ankles I see she’s wearing? Sub 1:00.0.?

As for Spain, Italy’s Marco Orsi won 50 in 21.94. That’ll get him into consols at Kazan what with Cielo, Mags, Manadou, Morozov, Adrian et al ALLgoing 20 point in prelims!

Instead of continuous training and racing in the past year, Ruta should take a pointer from Efimova on how to take several months vacation and still scorch the same blazing time in your first meet. She may even be a lot faster, being young, stronger, and WR holder after all.
