Can someone send me a AVI or MPEG4 video clip of the 50 breast World Record meter race? Does no good looking at it on YouTube.

I look at it backwards and forwards with VDUB.

If anyone sends it to you, send it my way. It'd be great to be able to look at it wish some quality.

You can watch the video here (http://www.nmnathletics.com/newMediaPlayer/console.htm?DB_OEM_ID=23020&type=live&oemid=23020&id=44428). At the beginning it says the order of events, so you can just skip to it at 17:30 (this is Stockholm, but Moscow is right below it if you want to watch that). Note the B70 Van der Burgh is wearing.

I've been watching this via an antenna in the DC area. If you have a digital tuner it's one of the sub channels of the local NBC station. I'm not sure if cable has it or not, but I've been getting it for two months or so now. It's quite nice to be able to watch live swimming every so often. They've even been doing the paraolympics this week.

Wayne, you can download the videos from youtube and convert them to any format you like (using any of several web sites if you don't have the software).
If the video was uploaded as high quality you can download it as mp4.

Just google "youtube download" and "video format conversion".
