What a great time for Liendo.  That would have gotten him a close 4th in Tokyo and a silver in Rio!

Yikes, the breaststroke times for both men and women...

Breaststroke is obviously the weak spot for Canada.  The women would have won the gold in the medley relay with a better leg there (not blaming Pickrem!).  Masse had the fastest back, MacNeil had the fastest fly and Penny had the 2nd fastest free.  Now with the mixed medley, Canada needs to find someone competent in the breast given their depth at other strokes.

There was Faith Knelson a few years ago but she took the Olympic year off for surgery and I don’t think came back. I was hopeful she would be the missing link but maybe it ain’t so.

Canada's best (arguably) para-swimmer Aurelie Rivard had a medical emergency during a race at the World Championships.

Hopefully everything is okay!

So for those who missed it, a more detailed version of the Paris 2024 schedule came out on Monday. Thought it would be interesting to analyze what Summer McIntosh's potential schedule could look like. Below are all the events that she COULD potentially swim. Of course she won't swim all of them but looking listing all the events down could help figure out what she could drop and what she may compete in. H means heats, SF means semifinals, F means final.

 

  Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Day 5 Day 6 Day 7 Day 8 Day 9
Morning 400m Free H 200m Free H 400m IM H   200m Fly H  

200m IM H

800m Free H

   
Evening

400m Free F

4x100m Free Relay F?

200m Free SF

400m IM F

200m Free F

  200m Fly SF

200m Fly F

4x200m Free Relay F

200m IM SF

200m IM F

800m Free F

 

You would think that she definitely would swim the 400m Freestyle, 400m IM, 200m butterfly and the final of the 4x200m Freestyle relay. 4x100m relay probably won't happen since we have good 100m freestyle depth already but who knows in two years.

 

So the biggest problem is that the finals of two of her best events, the 400m IM and 200m Freestyle fall on the same night. They're the first and last session of the night so pulling off the double is possible but given her rigorous schedule, it's probably not going to happen. In this case she'll probably drop the 200 Free since she's a bigger gold medal favourite in the IM and she would have the day 2 evening session off.

 

Then there's the clash between the 200m IM and 800 Free. The finals are back to back so doubling is impossible. It's entirely possible that she doesn't swim any of them since she didn't swim both events at worlds but they are the only events during the final 1/3 of the meet so she'll probably try to go for one of the events. In this case, I would think she would go for the 200m IM since given her event entries recently, she seems to like that more.
