Those starting blocks are fancy looking. Van der Burgh is a beast too. Lisogor and he are insane in the 50m.

Nystrand's 46.03 in the 100 free wasn't too shoddy, either. Only 20 hundredths of a second off his world record.

And, I didn't know about it until I looked at the line up for the 50 free, but Roland Schoeman broke the SCM WR in September, in Johannesburg and it now stands at 20:64!

Kirk posted a decent time in the 100. I thought she was done. Anyone know what her plans are? Going through Worlds? 2010? 2011? London?

Hell for that matter what's up with Jessica Hardy? Banned but not banned? Nothing on the FINA site

No update in a month and a half... don't think I'll call that a blog. Maybe an "archive of old thought" LOL

I would have thought Kirk would include info about her still competing in her blog.

I am also really interested to hear about any Hardy news.

THOSE BLOCKS ARE SO AWESOME!!!
