    Olympics Relay Predictions

    I wanted to see if I could get a 4x100 relay estimate just by adding up the top 4 individual 100 free times for each country this year.

    Men's times

    AUS 3:11.88
    FRA 3:12.41
    USA 3:12.75
    RUS 3:13.2
    BRA 3:13.89
    CHN 3:14.56
    GER 3:14.73
    JPN 3:15.2
    BEL 3:15.45
    GBR 3:15.52

    Yep, those are a little slow, which is to be expected since most of those individual swims were not tapered, plus the differences between relays and individual events. It is interesting that there's only about 3.6 seconds difference between Australia and Great Britain.

    Then there's the women's race...


    AUS 3:30.98
    USA 3:34.11
    CAN 3:35.81
    NED 3:35.84
    CHN 3:37.24
    FRA 3:37.27
    JPN 3:37.61
    ITA 3:37.68
    BRA 3:38.62
    RUS 3:38.64


    A little over 3.1 seconds just between Australia and USA.

    Canada's time was sans Taylor Ruck. If she swims the final Canada gets faster. Both Taylor and Penny O just turned 16...

    Taylor seemed off at her Canadian trials. I think they only took her for the 4x200 relay.

    I think the Australian women will win the 400 free relay easily. The men's race should be a good one.
