From first impressions he still seems pretty raw. His technique isn't as clean on top of the water as a lot of the other guys he is racing, but it is effective. He also seems to have that valuable commodity in the 100m Free these days - a strong second 50m.
Garcia is the type of swimmer that you might forget about in favour of some of the more established names, but that killer second 50m could bring him into medal contention. He seems to be one of the few swimmers where the cliche 'make the final and anything can happen' is fitting.
