Yes… Rin’s “Shining” that he wants to “fly” with….
Rin tried to do what he could to catch up, but when he made the touch he had just barely made fourth place. He didn’t even have the time to see Haruka dive in overhead.
All of a sudden, he felt a light and turned around. Haruka was swimming. Haruka was swimming while shining. His strong energy had become a shining light, and it was so dazzlingly bright it emitted from Haruka.
Rin was unable to move. He couldn’t take his eyes off of him. Rin’s heart was completely enraptured by Haruka’s gliding swimming, he was like a water bird dancing in the sky with it’s wings spread wide.
It was only after Haruka had made the turn that Rin somehow made it up onto the poolside, pulled by Makoto’s hand. With a huge lead, Haruka’s head rose to the surface. Then he started his stroke.
He has a catch like he’s going to hug someone. A supple elegant kick. A fluid rolling. Also, a high speed you would never imagine from that calm form.
That sight that transcended reality, captivated not only Rin, but everyone watching. No, not just watching. They’re feeling it. He was sure everyone here couldn’t help but feel the hot throbbing beat.
Haruka touched the goal. Without looking at their time, he easily climbs up onto the poolside. So easily that you could almost forget that he was just in a race.
