In what has been called a post-Phelps world, it looks as though TEAM USA is doing just fine!

Of course, the term “post-Phelps” is very much of a misnomer if by that one means a changing of the guard — sure, we’ve lost Michael, and Piersol, Hansen — to say nothing of the wonderful female Olympians — but there is still a cadre of “old folk” still here: Lochte, Grevers, Dana Vollmer, E. Beisel, etc.

But here, too, the lists and terms are misleading.

What we continue to see is the organic and natural movement from age to age, event to event, etc.

It was nice to see new siwmmers on the scene like Kevin Cordes (despite the medley relay gaffe) Chase Kalisz, and others.

TEAM USA!

PS: Please excuse the lack of “balance” in my posting! The women did a fantastic job: Franklin, Ledecky, Hardy, etc. Just my posting in a hurry!

Now that’s a summary page! 🙂

Pity there isn’t, to my knowledge, a one-stop shop for swim stats, aside from your site and the (incomplete) FINA page. Doubtless you’re familiar with Track & Field All-Time Performances:

Wouldn’t it be great if swimming had its own version? Are you aware of any efforts to create one?

John.

Craig Lord

Being built 🙂

JMott76

Really, Craig?? Well that’s fantastic news if true! Please keep us posted 🙂

Craig Lord

Yes… there’ll be a sea-change in the next 12 months …

Lennart van Haaften

Great to hear that. Keep up the good work.

Preparing Youtube playlists for Barcelona, highest-quality I can find. Should be ready in a few days.. Do check back here 🙂

I really wonder FINA’s policy on selling rights of it’s meetings. They should do the same as IOC did and restrict the rights for the duration of a meeting. I love IOC’s youtube channel where you can find everything in a centralized way in HD-quality.

Craig Lord

I’m sure that FINA will do the same sometime soon… they have the discs of every race at all world champs in full dating back to 1998 at least – a great archive

Awesome. Rumor had it that every last copy of the footage of the men’s 200 fly final from 2001 had been destroyed, but apparently this is not the case. 😉

JMott76

Okay here it is…

Emphasis on English commentary versions/HD where possible. Mainly finals, with notable heats/semis thrown in, all in event order. Any better copies I’ve missed? Let me know!

Also updated BBC Swimming list for those, like me, who can’t get enough of Jameson & Moorhouse:

Enjoy!

On an unrelated note, I for one will LMAO if Gatlin wins the 100 tonight….. Not because I condone drug cheats, but just to hear Crammy’s disappointed commentary 😉

[Like Steve overall, but he and Seb really need to drop the personal vendettas.. it’s gotten embarassing]
