Distance swimmers train together

1500m challenge: Two of the local Mallorcan distance swimmers, Victor Goicochea and Alex de Celis, from the Balearic elite squad came to the BEST Centre with coach Fernando Gomez Reino to train with top Chinese 1500m man Dai Jun and 200m star Jiang Hi Qi.

Shanghai coach David Lyles took them for a race pace set that saw Dai Jun get down to 53 sec from a push on the last 100 of a set of 20 high quality 100s and going 23.7 sec for his last 50.

Impressive stuff from a 1500m swimmer!
