[B][SIZE=3][FONT=Calibri]WATCH the biggest Swimming event of 2009 on Universal Sports.

My computer chair is very uncomfortable and my computer screen is made for
working and not for watching sports events.

Unfortunately, you're not on Canadian TV (or Cable) where Poker is considered a sport.................

I think that you can watch it live online at universalsports.com. It is so weird to see live swimming on a major network during an non-Olympic year. In 2007, I think that they were on live to tape on ESPN classic or deportes or some crap like that.

I cannot find the full events. I just watched the men's 4x100 relay on universalsports, but it didn't show the entire event. LAME! I saw the first swimmer, then the last.

Hopefully some site will broadcast the entire events. Share it if you know it.

Terrible- the videos of both the men's and the women's relays left out the middle two swimmers.

This is the web site, that backs up the TV broadcasts, right?

I've been real happy to see Universal Sports on the NBC side-channel (5.3) in Chicago. They replayed Phelps' 8 swims from Beijing. I saw the 4x100 free relay last year during Nationals, but now I have it on DVR. Anytime I want to get psyched-up, I can watch Lezak swim that anchor leg.

The UniversalSports website is showing the full replay of the swimming events. It looks like it is a day late, but that's alright.

Yeah, it's on 5.2 here in Seattle. There are probably lots of people out there who actually get Universal Sports and don't even realize it!
