China’s Sun Yang won the 800 freestyle at the Chinese Nationals today, posting incredible 7:44.12 compared to Sebastien Rouault’s 7:54.95 world’s best this year. Zhang Lin’s world record of 7:32.12 is still far ahead, but commenters at SwimmingWorld Magazine say from Chinese media, that Sun will no swim the 800 in Shanghai, saving his energy for the 1500, and that his swim now seemed like practice for the 1500. One commenter predicts a 14:20 in the 1500, compared to Grant Hackett’s 14.34.56 world record from 2001.
