Adlington vs Pellegrini


Olympic Champion Rebecca Adlington cracked 4.03 this weekend, winning the British national championships in Manchester with a time of 4:02.84. Speed Endurance Swimming Blog asked if she was the best 400m freestyler in the World, but then Italy’s Federica Pellegrini responds with a sizzling 3:57.89 in the 400 SCM free, breaking the first national records since the suit law changes, while still in heavy training. My bet’s on Fede.
