July 10, 2020— The Corona Race competition between the Netherlands and Belgium took place today in Antwerp, giving athletes a chance to spread their aquatic wings after having been training amidst the coronavirus pandemic. Unique to this match-up was the fact that there was no electronic timing, with swimmer’s outcomes validated via hand-controlled stopwatches only. With that in mind, several performances were eye-catching by themselves, but especially in light of the fact that swimmers have only been back in the water for handfuls of weeks.

Kosuke Kitajima: Swimmers Need To Start Writing The Next Chapter Following Tokyo 2020 Postponement
SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
March 26, 2020— Four-time Olympic champion Kosuke Kitajima – the only man in history to have won back-to-back breaststroke titles – believes athletes must prepare for every eventuality and overcome every hurdle in the light of the postponement of Tokyo 2020. The Japanese – known as the ‘Frog King’ – won the 100 and 200m breaststroke at Athens 2004 before a successful defence four years later in Beijing saw him write his own entry in the record books. That record of being the only male breaststroker to have retained an Olympic title – and the sole swimmer, man or woman, to have defended the 100m gold ...
