So you have these four guys. Haru’s the strongest, the most naturally-talented swimmer, but he has a bit of an attitude problem and he only chooses to swim freestyle. Makoto’s a good leader, well-liked by everyone, but he’s an average swimmer, if that. Nagisa makes up in enthusiasm what he lacks in height and skill. And Rei, their newest member, didn’t even know how to swim til he joined and can barely do the basics. It should not be a surprise to anyone that they didn’t go far in their individual events, even at the regional level.
