SWIMSWAM
Jan. 22, 2021— The men’s 200 free might be one of the most wide-open races in the Olympic year. China’s Sun Yang won the 2016 Olympic gold medal and both the 2017 and 2019 World Championships. But with Sun’s status in doubt amid an ongoing doping case, the battle for Tokyo Olympic gold could go in any direction. Japan’s Katsuhiro Matsumoto is making a name for himself in that gold medal hunt. The 23-year-old shaved a tenth off his own national record this week, going 1:45.13 to win the Kosuke Kitajima Cup in Tokyo. That’s the best time in the world this season, supplanting former leader Alexander G ...

SWIMSWAM
Jan. 22, 2021— Japan’s Katsuo (Katsuhiro) Matsumoto already made history by becoming the first man from his nation to medal in the 200m freestyle at a World Championships. But now the 23-year-old has leveled up to a new tier of competition in the event, firing off a shiny new national record to kick-off his 2021 racing calendar. While competing on day 1 of the 2021 Kosuke Kitajima Cup, an annual domestic meet in Tokyo known for wicked-quick performances, Matsumoto blasted a winning 200m free effort of 1:45.13. That not only took the gold in a huge lifetime best, but it also lowered his own national ...

SWIMMING WORLD NEWS
Jan. 20, 2021— Australian Swimming legend Ian Thorpe believes that his sensational 1:44.06 World record over 200 metres freestyle in 2001 remains one off the three most competitive four-length swims of the past two decades because “everyone in the world is swimming the 200 freestyle wrong.” “You can’t swim 150 meters easy and then turn it into a sprint. You are going to limit what time you are going to do,” says Thorpe, Olympic 400m freestyle champion at Sydney 2000 and 200m and 400m gold medallist at Athens 2004. Now 37, he believes that the only way the swimmer who cannot match the rare backend s ...

SWIMSWAM
Jan. 17, 2021— While it has been previously reported that Sun Yang’s eight-year ban was overturned by a Swiss Tribunal, the Swiss Federal Court has now issued a press release confirming that racist comments made towards China by the chairman of the three-member panel responsible for the original ban are the source of the overturning. A multiple-time Olympic champion, Sun Yang was originally given an eight-year ban by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) last February. The ruling was made following an out-of-competition doping control test at which Sun destroyed samples, arguing that those who w ...

image: New Ryan Lochte Doc Pain… New Ryan Lochte Doc Paints Sympathetic Picture, But Raises Deeper Questions
SWIMSWAM
July 16, 2020— I’ve found myself rooting for Ryan Lochte since his return to the national stage in summer 2019. I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about why that’s the case — he has repeatedly brought negative attention to the sport and to himself for making undeniably poor choices, and yet, I’m always drawn back by his “party boy-turned-family man” narrative. His latest foray to the small screen, “ In Deep with Ryan Lochte ” – while entertaining – did little to quell that confusion. The 69-minute film is a well-executed attempt by NBC to paint Lochte as a sympathetic figure. I teared up at times, l ...

SWIMSWAM
April 2, 2020— Last Saturday marked a month since the Switzerland-based Court of Arbitration for Sport handed Sun Yang an eight-year ban , meaning his window to file an appeal to a higher court theoretically has passed – though his lawyers vowed to appeal, we have yet to receive confirmation they have formally done so.

According to a press release last week, the court has suspended some operations while keeping others on track. The court issued the following statement (translated from German): I ...

FINA let him off the hook and allowed him to compete at the 2019 World Championships, where he was met with jeers and protests on the podium for the medals he won. But now his career is effectively over.
