I am going to be there on Sunday. Was not aware that Thorpe would be attending though.

I've never seen a USS meet with such a wide range of talent. I've been out of USS for some time now, but is this the way it is done now? How do they get the top talent to come to these meets? 100M fly starts at 51, and goes all the way up to a 1:04? I mean, even Hansen is going to be swimming against some 1:08 breaststrokers.

Don't miss Dennis Baker, age 44, seeded 23'd in the 200 fly with a 2:04.96.

I am not sure if that event is on Sunday but if it is, I will be watching for him. He is swimming with some sharks at this event, that is for sure.

I don't think he cares.

If I were Michael Phelps, I'd want to shake his hand.

Perhaps not. I sure as hell would though.

If it's on Sunday I'll be sure to snap some action shots of him.

I'm looking forward to the 100 Freestyle on Sunday with Phelps and Thorpe head to head. I think Lezak is in the mix as well.
And of course it is always fun to watch Phelps dominate the 200 IM and Hansen attempt to lap people on the 200 Breast.

Our 6 year old daughter is getting ready to start swimming for a local team so we are taking her to give her some inspiration.

Yeah, I will not be there to see his swims but I hope he has some PB's in that pool. What else could he ask for, right?

Thorpe pulled out of the 100m free.

Aw Mannnnnn! Is he swimming in the 400 Medley Relay on Sunday? Team Aus is slated to compete so I suspect he will. Either way, I hope Klete puts the hurt on him in the 200 Freestyle today.

He could ask to advance to the finals, which he did by finishing 13th in the prelims and securing a position in the consolation final.

What is a consolation final? Sounds unofficial.

It is just like when your girlfriend drops you, but says you can be best friends.

In this meet, the top 9 from the prelims swim in a final, 10 - 18 in the consolation final. This meet also has a "bonus final" for 19 - 27. If you don't make the top 27, you swim the prelim only.
