I'm sure some will be LCM, last year the Austin Grand Prix was
Prelims: SCY & Finals LCM

Are all these meets going to be held in yards?

If only all USA Swimming yards meets could have finals in LCM during Oct to March. I can dream, can't I.

Went to the meet this morning, it was fun to watch the fast "kids." Sat behind the blocks; lanes 4 and 5. Watched Soni and Kukors swim in their 200 BR heats; Amazing athletes. Some young gal edged out Soni in the prelims and she was beaming!!!

btw and fwiw; Phelps was sitting right next me for most of the 200BR Prelim heats.

I hope some of "it" rubbed off on me.

I was going to take the day off swimming today but will head to the pool for a sprint workout!!

Sitting right next to you? Long Beach must be more of a folksier meet than the Santa Clara Invitational (which I doubt b/c LB is LA). At SC last year, Phelps had a whole section to himself plus a security detail. No popping up a lawn chair right next to him there!

Enjoy your Aquaman's Aura speed increase!

Well, I was sitting in a "credentialed" area next to my 3 year old who was actually sitting next to him but i was surprised he was just kicking it in the mini-stands. The time frame he was there only a couple of other swimmers asked for a pic so no one was really bothering him.

Good point. Phelps was certainly flying on that last 50.

For comparison's sake, I checked last year's NCAA's when Clary set the record. His last 50 split was 26.27 and none of the other guys were under 26 either.

Notably, no Phelps. This is the first one he hasn't been to in several years.

No Weber-Gale or Peirsol either. That's all 3 of my most favorite swimmers. Ah, well.

I'm still going, though. No way I'm going to miss the fastest swimmers in the world duking it out in a pool close to home.

I am so going to try and go to Irvine. It's only about a half a day's drive away. Just watching the races at Indianapolis (or wherever they were last year) on a little viewing window was exciting. Actually being there, though? Whoa.

Just came back from watching 2 heats of both the women's 1500 and men's 800. Pretty non-eventful, no new meet records like last year. I sat up towards the top of the stands in the same spot I did last year, a nice, secluded spot, that apparently attracted the eye of Matt Grevers looking for a solitary spot, too. He sat down with his laptop and bags probably about twenty feet away from me. I didn't know he wore glasses, but he does. I thought of saying hello, but decided to let him have his privacy.

That guy is built so weird. Obviously, 6'8, but it's not just that. He looks like a brick wall walking towards you.
