If I can cross the finish line with a smile then maybe I’m finally doing something right.

The difference in Utsumi's post-13 vision for Makoto, Haru, and Rin's relationships with each other
Makoto and Haru: "This sort of distance where they can see each other on occasion really suits them."
Haru and Rin: "They may be in completely different locations, but the path they walk is the same, so they'll be able to swim together again."
"Indeed; [being a professional swimmer] is a path Haruka never would have chosen on his own. But despite claims that he doesn’t care about winning or losing or scoring certain times, he’s always been attentive to Rin’s presence. So I believe there were signs, deep down, that he would choose this path for his future."
