    Both Eireni Moshos and Kylie Jordan swim for a club team located not too far from Virginia — a team whose name escapes me at present but who, among its other members, features a certain world record-holder/Olympic gold-medalist who could well go four-for four or five @ Rio this summer if that gives you a hint.

    Jordan had a pr of 53.53 in the 100 fly going into the meet so a half-second drop is very good. Moshos has prs of 1:57.28 in the 200 back along w/that 54.28 in the 100 and in the 400 IM she’s been 4:13+.

    Both say they’d gladly race that wr-holder in the mile — as long as they got a 1400 meter headstart!
