What happened to the two sides of a story theory...? :p

I've been talking to a few people who know swimming tonight.

Every single one of them is sympathetic to Katinka and say her husband is a horrible bully who she should have left years ago...

Obviously I don't know if that is true but it's interesting everyone had the same opinion...

Yeah, I'm not too surprised to head that. I remember cameras showing him quite a lot in Budapest last year (like, after every Katinka's race). Perhaps the reason I remember it well is because he didn't look like some super kind person, to say it mildly...

Be that as it may, I'm not much of a fan of people who decide to cheat. Better just end the relationship first..

 

Oh well, obviously we're not them, but this whole story smells of sadness on all sides.

Santo Condorelli is officially part of team Italy now (at least in the process of doing so). With that, the end of Canadian male swimming. Unreal how strong the women are and how weak the men are. 10-15 years ago it was the opposite :cry:

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...
