Muffat won the final (1:56.01)… The results which are mentioned were swum in heats.

She did indeed – many thanks, an alert well worth a credit in copy 🙂

So Manadou’s coach, James Gibson, is that British breaststroker who retired a couple of years ago?

Thanks – and thanks, too, to our colleagues at L’Equipe who got the main results to us.

It was a shockingly bad performance from the Canet meeting, I was particularly interested to follow this meeting as the entire Danish national team (minus Lotte and Mie) is competing there, including our junior squad for Poznan, but while I managed to watch the evening finals on a dodgy Brazilian live stream trying to get results from the heats this morning was practically impossible. In Denmark even club meets generally have live timing (via the excellent livetiming.dk) so for a meeting this big it seems inexcusable. If swimming is ever to be anything other than a minority interest briefly in the public eye during the Olympics we need to have more meetings making an effort to get live coverage available.

Ah well at least I got to see Rikke tearing it up in the 200 breast. Sådan!

DanishSwimFan, I couldn’t agree more. A live streaming is a great possibility to sports, which don’t normally get their more minor competitions on TV, as broadcasting means are becoming more diversified. For instance, FINA TV is exactly what is needed and such progress is required on all fronts. Just a bit better quality and one can begin to look those live streaming coverages on own TV.
