Mireia Belmonte: Swinger Extraordinaire

Postby Peanutbutterwolf » Tue Aug 13, 2013 3:01 pm

Mireia Belmonte just broke the 8:00 barrier in the short course 800 free. Amazing swim. You may remember her as a medalist in Beijing.

Confession:
I have a crush on her.

High rev smooth or extra refined swinger?

Answer isn't that simple when you consider her avg dps of 17 strokes /100m for a pace of 1min/100m!

Very true, Solar. Most swimmers are "grey area" swimmers, IMO. Nearly everyone I swam with at the elite level was a mixture of both.

This isn’t the first world record of Mireia. She has broken the 400 IM world record at the short course European championships in 2008 in 4.25.06.

That's true... she's on a world record terror run! I am still convinced she's quite the swinger...
