    Yes, which is why it's happened so often in the past I suppose.

    Well, eventually someone was bound to come around who was the best swimmer ever. Doesn't make him the greatest athlete though.

    Swimmers outraged over pre-Games treatment - London 2012 Olympic Games - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

    That may be in part because at the televised Olympic trials this year, swimmers with disabilities were asked to race during ad breaks.

    Who said it does? He belongs in the argument though. I understand what you're saying about different events, but he's held records over multiple distances and multiple strokes. It would be like Bolt winning the 100 and the 800.

    Hope you just watche the hockey, btw.

    Not easy mate. The IOC is spectacular in protecting their copyright images.Those of our networks here who don't hav ethe rights are actually simulating the races using Lego and showing them on TV. I kid you not.

    Fmd only the Poms could stage a SUMMER Olympics where an open water swimmer gets pulled out of the water with hypothermia.

    And describing it as "open water" is being very ****ing generous - it's a pond ffs and I'm sure that the people that devised the sport didnt have this type of water in mind

    Whoa! Great finish to that race. The Hungarian looked completely gone, but just wouldn't let the American get past. Awesome effort.
