  3. Alex Di Minaur (Tennis) seems to be done for Paris with his hip injury 3-6 weeks 🙁 So that’s a bit of a blow for our chances in tennis but my hopes were low anyway. Tennis never really delivers for us. Not sure if there will be a replacement for him
  4. Definitely Arnie winning the triple and cementing herself as a legend. 800free is obviously going to be a challenge but Ledecky wasn’t anything crazy at US trials. It is certainly a rare privilege that we have both of them tho 😂
  5. This thread died again so here’s a fun hypothetical: Mollie wins gold in the 100 free. Arnie wins it in the 400 and 800 free (obviously these events aren’t in order but bear with me). Who do you want to win the 200 free? Arnie - If Arnie does it she gets a legendary triple, as well as cementing the double double and putting herself in the top 3 women all time for individual Olympic medals, and overall medallists. Mollie - If Mollie does it she is the first woman not from East Germany to do the 100-200 double at the Olympics, and quite possibly ends the meet with 4 gold medals, which would catapult her to 3rd all time in Olympic medals for women. Would you prefer Arnie cements herself as a legend, or Mollie throws her name in the legend hat for the first time?
  6. Good to see a big team Apparently it’s our second ever biggest athletics team. Just not selecting Myers the only disappointment
  7. McSweyn in championship 1500s is just painful. I don't get why he wasn't made run the 5k? Some posters elsewhere are insinuating he's getting preferential treatment because he's a Bideau athlete.
  8. What a joke that is, someone with so much potential, why not give him the experience of a first Olympics? Oh yeah let’s instead pick McSweyn who inevitably isn’t gonna do anything or get any better Awful decision
  9. Promising junior Cam Myers not selected for the 1500m. The three entries will be Olivier Hoare, Stewart McSweyn and Adam Spencer.
  10. On the first night of Fukuoka I commented that if we won 4/4 golds (not counting the men’s 400IM which we were never winning) we would top the medal table and we did. I agree the first night will tell us a lot, and here are my predictions: 4/4 gold - Not possible but we are 100% topping the tally 3/4 gold and USA doesn’t win the 4th - we are topping the tally 3/4 gold and USA wins the 4th - we have a strong chance but it’ll be close 2/4 gold - small chance of topping the tally but unlikely 0-1 gold - whole meet is cooked
  11. The first night is going to be very telling, as if we win 3 golds (w400f m400f and w4x100) and realistically like a bronze in the m4x100 then the chance for us to top the tally is on. Honestly the men’s 400 free situation is so frustrating as when I heard hafnaoui wasn’t competing I was thinking surely we will cruise to it, but unfortunately the German guy had other plans and now neither short or winnington is going to be favourite heading in
  12. Ok this topic has died a little. So let’s do a little fun analysis. For the first time since Melbourne it looks like we have a chance at topping the swimming medal table. USA seems like the only other team capable (maybe China but USA and AUS would both need to fall apart). This will hinge heavily on 3 key swimmers: 1. Kaylee McKeown: Has a gold chance in 100 back, 200 back and 200IM. The second favourite in these events are all Americans (Smith, Smith, Douglass). So if Kaylee wins all 3 that’s +3 to AUS, and if she loses all 3 it’s likely +3 to USA, which is a massive 6 gold swing. 2. Sam Short: Short looked like the favourite for the 400 and likely favourite for the 800 before he got sick and was off form at trials. The 400 won’t be won by an American but the 800 likely goes to Finke if not Short. So Short can get +2 to AUS, or possibly +1 to USA, so a potential 3 gold swing. 3. Ariarne Titmus: Titmus has a chance in the 200 free. Second favourite is MOC so if Titmus loses MOC should win, and if both lose then an American won’t win. Titmus is favourite in the 400, and it’s possible but quite unlikely American Ledecky wins if Titmus doesn’t. Ledecky is the favourite in the 800, but Titmus has a very outside chance. If Titmus (or Titmus + MOC) wins all 3 that’s a +3 to AUS, or possibly a +2 to USA if she loses them all, making a 5 medal swing. So overall, these 3 swimmers represent a best case scenario of +8 to AUS or a worst case scenario of +6 to USA, a 14 gold medal swing. We can pretty confidently say if we get 0/8 there is no possibility we top the medal table (and likely aren’t in the top 3), but if we win all 8 then that alone might be enough. Add strong potential in W100 free, 100 free relay and 200 free relay, and if these three can all pull off all their swims we will likely win. Now just to be clear it is extremely unlikely we convert all 8 of these (both 800s are especially unlikely) but hey it’s fun to dream haha
  13. It was fun having them in Chandler and ultimately trials is about qualifying, so slower pool isn’t a bad thing for those who qualified. The people it hurts is those who just missed the QT
  14. I was expecting Perez/Ebden to be selected in mixed doubles, as at Roland Garros a few weeks back they were ranked no1 seed but lost in the third round. Maybe they will be selected later on Storm hunters injury was unfortunate
  15. I wasnt aware of Storm Hunters injury oh,well,there goes my outside chance of a doubles medal
  16. Tennis Selection Men’s Singles Alex Di Minaur, Alexei Popyrin, Chris O’Connell, Rinky Hijikata Woman’s Singles Ajila Tomljanovic Men’s Doubles Matthew Ebden & John Perrs Alexei Popyrin & Alex Di Minaur Woman’s Doubles Ellen Perez & Daria Saville No mixed doubles it appears Cant really expect much in terms of medals as it’s clay which we are crap at
  17. That’s probably a just as good replacement, I just hope we go better than the solitary bronze in Tokyo, they are much better than that
  18. SOPAC is nearly 30 years old but its still a fantastic pool. it was designed based on those parameters from that article. Definitely wouldve been a better option than Chandler.
  19. I’m guessing they should’ve held the trials at SOPAC then? Which is newer Even the southport pool seemed to be faster but its outdoors so that wouldn’t suit trials, but those times in April were crazy considering no one was tapered
  20. Surfing Sally Fitzgibbons on standby for Tyler Wright https://www.nine.com.au/sport/olympics/paris-2024-surfing-tyler-wright-sally-fitzgibbons-ryan-callinan-20240627-p5jpe2.html
  21. Nice explanation here https://www.physioinqmcmahonspoint.com.au/blog/swimming-pool-technology-fast-pools-v-slow-pools#:~:text=First of all%2C a fast,resistance that slows swimmers down. Chandler Pool is an old pool that does have depth changes. its not ideal and shouldnt be used where every 100 of a second mattered in qualifying
  22. Is there an actual such thing as slow pools and fast pools? Like I know in the velodrome that’s a thing but in swimming? That would be interesting.
  23. There is part of me that believes we swam in a very slow pool (women’s 200 free was really the only event faster than expected, maybe Kaylee 2IM) and weren’t fully rested, so maybe we’ll improve heaps in Paris. There’s also part of me that thinks I might be delusional. Surely none of the sprint free boys would risk not being tapered in such a close field. However, that did kind of happen in Fukuoka so who knows. It would be so funny if all our swimmers who said “oh I’m really not happy with that time” and acted all sullen at trials all just went massive PBs in Paris. Like an orchestrated trolling.
