What a competition! Hagino was so fast on the last 50 m!!

Good on Hagino! I'm not sure why they were calling it a major upset, unless they expected Park to win as the home favourite, because the Japanese swimmers have in many cases been the ones pegged "to beat" or at least, "to watch out for". I'm very happy Japan has some good swimmers, and still quite up-and-coming to boot despite winning. This means good things for them and Japan in 2016 and later if they can keep it up. As for the other "two great swimmers" in the races, best of luck to them as well. The close competition makes it more fun.
