Not only more intersting but also older. I think many entrants are age groupers, at least that's been my experience.

Yea, ours is much more interesting. They don't have aliens, or islands, or fat ripples, or anything cool like that.

Ok, that was me ranking the Texas boys ... love em'!

Lenny is way hot though ... but as a USC boy he's in another category ...


The women I think are good-looking ... Summer, Amanda is beautiful, even prettier in person, Natalie is adorable ... Inky seems a bit masculine, but she is pretty too ... The Kirk girls are pretty, too ...

I find it interesting. I like reading about the international swimming scene and why they think who is going to break what record, etc. I think that ours has a better lay out...

I can't believe you guys forgot Michael! Completely agree with the others though. It must be something about the water in Texas.

And what about Kaitlin? She's really pretty too. I'm always amazed that she gets all her hair into one cap. And of course you can't forget Jenny.

Agreed Heather, they all look better in person (granted I can only speak for 3 but still)

I'm not sure that I would classify Inky as a "woman"...Being an "older" woman I still have the hots for Biondi and Steve Lundquist (well at least for the way they looked in 1988 and 1984 respectively)...Of the current guys I'll take Lenny.

I saw Inge when she was training in the US. She did some sets with sweatshirt, blue jeans and tennis shoes. that's how she got her muscles.

I beg to differ on that point. I coached the Masters group at the same facility where Coach Paul Bergen was training Inky, and they rarely did that. I observed the group's progress for 30 months starting in September, 1998, and going through the Sydney Olympics. The female swimmers in Bergen's program typically swim with tank T-shirts under their suits. They sometimes swim with sneakers, but not as often. They barely ever swim with sweatshirts and blue jeans.

Personally, I feel Inky's incredible dryland routine has everything to do with her physique. Coach Paul Bergen is well known for his challenging and creative approach to swim training, technique, and dryland. The dryland routine includes a fair amount of rope climbing, and a healthy dose of running.

Side note: In 2000, very few people understood why Inky improved so dramatically, and they drew all kinds of conclusions. Even though I worked at the same pool and saw most of the swim sessions, I was skeptical, too.

I hadn't visited any of the group's dryland training sessions until last summer, when I was writing a feature for Swimming Technique about Windmill Freestyle. At that point, I learned a lot more about the type of dryland training she had done, along with the incredible technical developments in her freestyle and butterfly. Not only was it a lot easier to see why she became so fit, but it erased any doubts in my mind about how she achieved her success -- legitimately -- through hard work and technical innovation.

IMHO, some of the comments in this forum, and elsewhere, are terribly misinformed and unfair.

I find it ironic that Amy van Dyken, who essentially accused Inge of steroid abuse after losing to her in Sydney (saying in an interview somthing to the effect that she could have won too if she were a man), was called to testify before the grand jury in the BALCO case. Her testimony remains sealed (as was Giambi's and Bonds's at one time).
