This again proves my point in the other article thread that 400 IM makes swimmers honest and that you can’t fake 400 IM.

ASF – I thought this looked a much better swim at first, but 2.12.76 is 858 FINA points and 4.44 400IM (her heats time) is 844. That’s not such a big difference. Let’s see if she goes faster or slower in the final.
