Highly doubt it, at least not in the states.

Kirsty Coventry trains in Austin, her boyfriend Chris trains with Longhorn Masters, he's in Japan with her.

You would think they'd at least show it taped. This is the ramp to the Olympics.

I think Salo is doing wonders for Rebecca Soni. She was definitely on the radar, but more so for the 200. All of a sudden I think she's the one to beat in both the 100 & 200.

Lenton anchoring relay in 52.91
Eamon Sullivan (Aus) leading off relay in 48.68

Watch out for the Chinese next year!!! There are some young girls performing quite well in this meet. 2 thirteen year olds placed in the top 8 in the 400 IM.

Coventry went sub 1:00 in the 100 back. That's 3 women now that have done that! That's awesome!

more very impressive swims
Kirsty C almost got the WR in the 200 BK

Looks like Grant Hackett's back to form; I'm really pulling for him to take the 1500 title again.
