Just day 1 of prelims - but who is looking good and and who is not ?

Cold - Brendan Hansen

Hot - that Japanese guy

Cold - the other US breaststroker

Hot - the team did not make finals, but 200 - 800 Free specialist PELLEGRINI split a 53.42 in the relay

Cold - going 3:44 or 4:11 and not making the final in the 400 Free / IM is "cold"

Hot - Stephanie Rice and Katie Hoff - did not see the race, but Rice had the best 300 split and cruised the last 100

Hot - Beisel - awesome in prelims. She didn't freak out as a 15 yr. old.

Hansen said he didn't go all out.Given his flame out in the 200 at Trials that may be good strategy.We'll see.

How awesome would it be for Beisel to win the 400 IM?

I guess the Chinese girl that made finals is only 14.

Regarding Hansen...does anyone know if there anything going on with him?

He doesn't quite have the spark I'm used to seeing.

Ice cold... shocked that Grant Hackett didn't medal in the 400 free, IMHO.
