One of the few events where Denmark might actually manage to get a medal or two, maybe even a gold from Lotte Friis. Unless they don't have 800 m and 1500 m at he olympics anymore, xalcyx doesn't have them on his list.
Anyway, Swimming is usually quite entertaining to watch, so I'll probably watch it.
I had the 800 on there and tipped Muffat. They've never had 1500 for women at the Olympics.
Friis may be in the hunt..... tough to say in the minor medals. There will be several girls who will put their hands up but I think the top 2 are above the rest right now. I certainly think Adlington is the favorite, but from what I've seen of her in person last year I just think Muffat is ready to explode here. The splitting she was doing at some of those Mare Nostrum meets the past month or two is just extraordinary.
That's why it will be fun though - we don't know for sure. Pressure does funny things to people at a meet such as this.
The pools are built to minimize the back wash so all lanes should be almost equal in that but it still does have a little impact. I think it's more mental than anything but they said that the roof of the building makes it hard for the end lanes to not run into the lane lines on backstroke.
