    I'm hoping FINA's trying to telegraph a return to tech suits by having a male swimmer with full leggings on this home page!

    I'm disappointed this meet will be indoors. Looks to be a setup like US Olympic Trials: temporary Myrtha pools in an indoor arena, Palau Sant Jordi.

    Actually only swimming and synchro will be inside. Both diving and water polo will be in outdoor pools ('92 Olympic venues).

    Wow, I think the full leggings is VERY interesting. FINA is prone to making mistakes, but I can't imagine that showing a swimmer with full leggings was a mistake.

    I'd love full body, but I'll take leggings any day!!

    I hope not, I just took out a mortgage on my house for some tech-jammers.

    Re: 2013 FINA World Championships Barcelona

    Lots of great swims so far:

    Ruta M doing bar none the greatest 100 Br ever... in morning heats.
    Gilot's kick ass 46 mid split and Stravius' great anchor.
    Ledecky, obviously. Costa's awesome silver.
    Campbell's all-destroying lead-off, wow what a split.
    Coughlin's unexpectedly awesome relay split, Romano's Lezak impersonation. Ervin just continuing to get better.
    Yang making it look easy.

    Uh-oh:
    Lochte's 47.9 split.
    The extremely slow heats of the men's 200 Fr. Only heats, I know. Your #1 seed into the semis : Robbie Renwick?
    Jazz Carlin not medalling in the 400 and then going 20 seconds slower in the 1,500 than she went two weeks ago and missing the finals.
    Adrian puking after the relay medal ceremony.
    Cameron VDB's 100 Br semi.

    Argh, the men's 4x100 free haunts me still! We were so close. Hopefully all four of those guys will recoup in their various individual races.

    The lady's 4x100 free relay was incredible. But I think I was jumping around more than Natalie and Missy were. They just kind of stood there. I would have been turning backflips on deck just because of Romano's swim. In fact for a minute or so I thought I was actually watching the semifinal, there seemed ot be so little celebrating. I don't know, did I miss something?

    I have to agree with you. Maybe it was the wayh that NBC cut the tape and they didn't catch the immediate post-race celebration. Romano's swim was Lezak-worthy in her comeback; for such a fast race (2 seconds under the exsiting american record) and after a drought of sorts for the American women winning that relay, you would've expected a huge celebration.

    mens sprinters dont seem to be doing that well as a whole. or maybe i should say feigen isnt. both of his swims were poor. adrian's lead off while 1st wasnt that great either. volmer's 100 fly was ick. but jaeger's 400 was pretty darn good against the demoralizing yang (he pulled 1 sec on the field on the 2nd 50! and then just walked away!) usa mens 100 breast and nobody goes under 00? ouch! jaeger looking super strong in the 800.
    imho, so of those that were in london last year (and won) dont seem to have the fire here in barcelona. just my take.

    I noticed the same thing. Maybe they were stunned? Or, as you said, maybe they edited it strangely.

    Both Adrian and Vollmer were sick. He had to leave the medal stand to throw up.

    I agree with you on the women's 4 x 100 reaction - way more subdued than I expected!!

    I couldn't watch it at work, so I followed it on Twitter. I have a reasonably good vocabulary but all I can say is, "Holy , Katie!" My kingdom for video of the full race!
