When Australia’s Cate Campbell failed to capture the crown she wanted most in Rio—an individual Olympic gold medal—the three-time Olympian questioned her love for the sport and all the effort she had put in over her career.

But at Pan Pacs, she swam slower than her season bests twice (800 and 200 freestyles) on the first day of the meet. “It’s all about the process,” she admits, “and I know that I have two more years to go until the big show here in Tokyo.”

    Australia shined at Pan Pacs? Perhaps you ought to review the medals by country table, which you seem to have conveniently left out of your issue. Great Cate? Low threshold of greatness–one good 100 M Free in the past five years, and only the third fastest 50 M free swim in the world this season.

    Just Swim

    Yes, congrats to the unsportsmanlike Cate on her one good swim in the past five years, and thanks again Cate for putting Team USA “on notice” among your other insults. Meanwhile, here is the medal count from 2018 Pan Pacs on the women’s side:

    United States 22
    Australia. 12
    Japan. 10
    Canada. 7

    Self-congratulatory Cate needs to chill. It will take a lot more than this overhyped one good swim in one event in order to overcome “the greatest choke in Olympic history” as she herself called it.

    How exactly did Australia “shine” at Pan Pacs? A jet-lagged Team USA that arrived in Tokyo three days before the meet won 20 gold medals to Australia’s 8. Between Pan Pacs and Junior Pan Pacs, the U.S. won 99 medals to Australia’s 42, and the U.S. won 47 gold medals to Australia’s 12.
