World swimming championships 2017: James Magnussen takes aim at Australian relay tactics

DUAL 100m freestyle world champion James Magnussen has accused Australian coaches of “going against our swimming history” with their current relay tactics at big meets.

Australia are still without a gold medal six days into the world championships in Budapest, continuing the nation’s struggles after a largely underwhelming Rio Olympic campaign.

With a youthful team and some key absences in Hungary this week — including Magnussen, who opted out to focus on racing outside the national setup — expectations weren’t overly high of the Dolphins and ‘The Missle’ regards a medal tally of no gold, five silver and two bronze so far as a “par” performance overall.
