As I swim at the local 24 Hour Fitness, I notice many people who have not mastered the art of breathing and swimming at the same time. One guy will thrash as hard as he can, holding his breath, until he has to stop at the 2/3 lane length mark and breathe. He will swim an hour this way! A...

FINA WC commentary by William Clark
Just a thought, but does anyone else find Rowdy Gaines' high pitched shrieking during races incredibly annoying? I know he's knowledgeable and all that, but I end up having to turn off the sound because I can't take it any more. Makes me tremble for London 2012.
