Seems so trivial now. Someone swimming a hundredth of a second faster than someone else when so many are gasping for their last breath in the entire worlds hospitals.

Still, I guess we need such pointless trivia to give our minds something to think about rather than death and misery data.

So good luck, and hope they throw in an extra bucket full of chlorine in each pool you train in, as tiny pieces of poo can carry this virus for a long time if shared by infected people. Take care and hope you stay safe and do well. We need some good, albeit useless news now.
