    Awaiting 100m free Men(result from 4x100m)

    Some notable performance in the heat :

    BOUSQUET Frederick 0.12 21.77 46.63
    MAGNINI Filippo 0.23 22.65 46.84
    van den HOOGENBAND Pieter 0.20 22.06 47.17
    TARGETT Matt 0.25 22.29 47.22
    WILDMAN-TOBRINER Ben 0.24 22.69 48.03

    Leading Off

    LEVEAUX Amaury 0.77 23.18 47.76 OR
    CIELO FILHO Cesar 0.69 22.53 47.91
    HAYDEN Brent 0.76 23.26 48.28
    NYSTRAND Stefan 0.95 22.98 48.31


    VdH look like is back!
    Magnini 2nd leg in 24.19
    Bousquet will not compete in 100 but 46.63 !!
    Leveaux OR but he'll not get the chance too.
    Cielo is in the game.


    USA WR, solid but a little "unspiring" performance...
    Tonight the gold will be wide open leading the way the France with Gilot and Bernard (with Leveaux and Bousquet on the paper all under 48s !! ), The Aussie with Sullivan.
    Goal : Going as fast as I can.

    Wow, what happened there? .95 rt? I think that Rob Copeland would have beat him to the water with that start.

    This is gonna be an old fashioned shoot out. I have no idea who is gonna pull this off but I have a feeling that the Aussie's are gonna take it. They seem to have the most room to improve with those very cautious relay exchanges.

    I think it comes down to the roster changes. The US will put Phelps, Lezak, and Weber-Gale in tonight. And keep Jones?

    The French will put in Bernard and Gilot. They'll be replacing a 49+ split with a 46+, a low 48 with a sub 48.

    Bousquet's split was incredible.

    I would guess that Phelps goes mid 47 flat start, Lezak and W-G 47 low or better and Jones mid-47. Maybe one USA guy breaks 47?

    I've been calling for Phelps to lead off in WR or near WR time. This might be the bets race in history, 3 or 4 teams could break the world record. How often has a country broken the WR with their #4-7 swimmers? Crazy.

    I don't think the French can be beat if Bousquet and Levereaux do this again - they will drop 3 sec just one the one split and then probably another on the other. Nobody can match that.

    Little surprised by the South Africans - their "big" horses were the slow ones.

    Bousquet is a relay giant. Great split by Magnini as well.

    I'm pretty sure NBC shows all of the swimming semis/finals live in Eastern and Central time. Not that we're bitter way out west. Goodness, no.

    I really liked that they repeatedly said it was live when I knew the results.

    Phelps went 47.51 to lead off, just .01 off the (now it's the old) world record.
    GWG went 47.02
    jones went 47.65
    Lezak went 46.06 to Bernards 47.63


    I was screaming "F you France!" at the TV. It was awesome. My wife was scared.

    GWG- "Michael and Bob came by and told me the Frenchies were talking stuff......."

    Classic.

    Thank goodness for the Canadian network that my cable company carries. They saved the day by showing events live in Athens 2004 and they are doing it again this year.

    Bernard went 46.73. He tightened up, but not enough to go a mid-47.

    I do wonder how much of Lezak's 46.0 was from being ready to swim (we'll find out in the 100), from catching a perfect draft, and from being psyched-out-of-his-gourd relay teammate.

    WOW Eamon Sullivan what a swim 100m WR WOW Phelps wasn't even close to him! Eamon sizzled in the pool, he'll be very hard to beat in the 50m and 100m freestyle events, he was just smoking hot in the pool!

    Congrats to the boys for getting a bronze, great swim boys!

    Phelps was just .26 behind Sullivan. I'd say that was plenty close for a middle distance freestyler against a pure sprinter!

    I agree. Phelps was right there and did exactly what he needed to do (as did everyone else) to put them in position for the gold. I am quite sure that Phelps is capable of changing gears and if he decides to train for the 100, you will see some serious speed.
