I’ll give it to Sawrymovitcz that it is extremely impressive to come back like that, World Champion in 2007 and European Short Course Champion with a 14:24.54 the same year, and then pretty much nothing until he swam a 14:29.81 during prelims here in Szczecin yesterday morning. Pál chose to race for gold in the final, and when that pace turned out to be too much, then he lost the silver and bronze again. Ah well, everything or nothing. See result list here.
The rest of us went out to eat and stuff, away from internet (which has been pretty miserable by the way … despite of big promises and great speed at time, in practice we’ve had internet here in the hotel lobby, and at the venue during prelims). Tomorrow will be another travel day, but then I’ll be back in internet wonderland :-)
