The imperial strokes of swimming luminaries of the last quarter century, including notable crawlers like the legendary Australian Ian Thorpe or German Paul Biedermann, this one with the use of turbo swimsuits, high-tech carbon fiber shark skin, with which 159 RM were beaten in short and Olympic pools in 2008 and 2009, have not managed to break the mythical wall of the 3' and 40 seconds in the 400 m free swim. Today, at the start of the Swimming World Cup in Budapest, the Australian Samuel Short, gold in the recent World Cup in Fukuoka, will try to become the first to stroke the eight ponds at a pace that is as burning as it is spectacular, under 55 seconds per 100 m. In the gallery of great heroes there are Weissmuller, Romanian-American, the first to break 5'00” in the 400 m freestyle, clocked 4'57”0 on March 6, 1923 in New Haven, USA. They contributed to the approach at around 4 minutes, in an atmosphere of scientific certainty, the Australian Murray Rose4'13”14 in Chicago on 08-17-62, and the American arrow Don Schollander (4'11”6) in Lincoln, Nebraska, 08-18-1966. Mark Spitzthe French Alain Mosconiand the first to reach four minutes was the water polo player Kurt Krumpholz, 4'00”11. Finally, at the World Cup in Belgrade, Rick DeMontfrom the USA, after experiencing the bitter pill of the 1972 Munich Olympics - I shortened it: after winning the 400 m free swim, he was disqualified shortly before competing in the 1,500 m for the use of a prohibited substance that DeMont He had been taking it for asthma since he was four years old. Before traveling to Munich she consulted the head of the Medical Commission of the Olympic delegation and he authorized her to use her. The doctor was banned for life from US water sports. Ah, the exit of DeMont allowed the Mexican Guillermo Garcia to participate in the grand final—was the swimmer who crossed the mythical wall in 3'58”18 on 09-09-1972. Sports records are like the Phoenix bird, but they do not need 500 years to rise again, they are barely burned to ashes when they revive instantly, in a challenging sequence due to being destroyed. The objective was 3'50” and the feat of shattering the wall belonged to the Soviet Vladimir Salnikov when swimming the 400 in 3'49”57 on 08-22-1999, during the USSR-RDA match in Moscow. Salnikov He beat the RM five times. In August 99 Ian Thorpe broke the mark Kieren Perkins in 3'41”83 and, like the shark of the Russian steppes, he sprayed it 5 times. On July 30, 2002 he marked 3'40”08. The German Bidermann, with the turbo swimsuit, improved 1/100” and left it at 3'40”7. He drank it in negative partials 1'51”02 in the first 200 m and 1'49”05 in the second 200. The crawler goes to Budapest for 2 golds, in 400 and 1,500 m. In Fukuoka, Shortsby beating the Tunisian Ahmed Hafnaoui by 2/100”, he could not cover the 8 ponds in negative partials.
