really a great meet indeed...

among others, great show by Adam Peaty in the men's quick breastroke (58 and a half over 100m and 26.41 over 50m -nobody outside him has ever swam a time like that) and wonderful fight between Pernille Blume and Sarah Sjostrom in the quick freestyle for the girls...

another amazing result is the 21.16 over 50m free for Ben Proud...

but overall almost all the races have been among the quickest in the world in this 2018 season so far...

and we had also a lot of very promising results for the Italian team (the new IR by Panziera in the 200m back with a low 2.07 clocking is really impressive, she would have won the bronze medal in Rio with such performance)...

now we have to wait and see if they can match all that in Glasgow next month, otherwise it would be another disappointing episode of which our swimming is full in its history...

Olympic double Bronze medallist (400m & 1500m Free) and 800m Free reigning World Champion Gabriele Detti (ITA) is officially out of the 2018 European Championships, after his left shoulder injury is slightly improving, but not enough to allow him to be in decent shape for this event (and it's also a precautional decision of not trying to hard and making further damages to his left shoulder ahead of the 2019 and 2020 seasons, which are a lot more important to him and to Italian swimming than this year's Continental Champs)...

So Dressel has to qualify for next year's world championships in another way?

yes, but I don't know if they will use next year's Nationals or another system (with more flexibility than the previous years)...:mumble:

however, I guess they will go for the 1-shot event next summer just before the World Champs, as they normally do with the Olympic Trials...

I think he won't be able to swim the 100 free individually at the 2019 worlds, but only the relay. I guess he can still gain an individual spot in the 100 fly or 50 free.
