Everything’s harder when you’re occupied. Good for them for getting into the Olympics.


Not having the correct sized pool to train in is a huge disadvantage!

If you’ve ever been on a swim team you’d know what I mean about how when you do tons of laps your body goes into auto-pilot regarding turns, and if you’re training in a smaller pool you’ll have a totally different rhythm (I tried it but it was not my thing, I preferred diving – a future birdie I was 😉 )

I used to go to school with kids that were training at the national training facility nearby and they swam every morning before school for hours. Having to endure daily lines at checkpoints on top of that would be a non-starter.
