    I wonder what place Cielo would've taken if Alain Bernard, Eamon Sullivan and Stefan Nystrand were in the race.

    amazing swim. note that he does some dolphins off the start/turns. certainly looks to me like he's flutter kicking pretty hard too...

    Thanks Jeff for the superb video.
    Much better thank YouTube.

    It looked as if he didn't waste any time breaking out of the turns and starting up on the flutter kick.

    The 40.92 100 yards converts to a 45.67 SCM,
    and a 47.42 LCM, again... besting the world...
