Anyone know if live results will be available of the upcoming LCM Nationals?

Thanks and swim fast!

Along that line, do they ever stream the races. I just watched my nieces run in the AAU Junior Olympics. Eventhough I couldn't get there, it was great to watch it on my computer...LIVE.

Yes I was :groovy: for them!

Yes, real time results will be available throughout the meet. The link to this area will be available on the USMS home page by the time the meet starts Friday AM.

Showing the whole meet over streaming video would be a very nice thing to have. Maybe some day, I'd love to see it. The big question of course is cost. Our meets are VERY long. I see that even for the USA Swimming nationals they only streamed the finals and not the prelims. I'm guessing this was a cost consideration, and our nationals run much longer than their prelims and finals put together.

The AAU JO were 8am to 6pm for 8 days. I am not an IT Geek but I don't think the cost is very high, mostly bandwidth.

AAU needed 3+ cameras. A swim meet could get away with one.

I still think that, as an interim measure, that streaming the live announcing feed would be a gas as a supplement to the heat by heat results now.

A live stream would be awesome! I want to check out Allen Stark swimming that 200 butterfrog. Plus, seeing everyone wince and moan and groan over their shoulders and knees would be amusing. Fighting over coffee cups and ice packs. All good stuff.

Mark Gill does a great job. That would be nice.

Attention fans. Do you have a camera? If so turn it towards you, and take a picture. If you are blinded by a flash, your flash is on! Turn it off!
