kyleme5 asked: I really don't think every swimmer in the world should appreciate the previously mentioned times since they are in yards and the only place in the world where that makes sense and is used is in america.
Fast swimming is fast swimming. It shouldn’t take a mathematician to realize that these times are fast as hell, but for those less inclined to do a mild amount of research and/or just recognize fast swimming here you go:
Those are the approximate conversions to LCM and before I get harassed I know that those are not completely accurate conversions.
Just saying, these men are the fastest to ever touch the water in their specific races BY FAR (save Shields, cause you know… Phelps and all) and their times should be respected, American or not.
