Phelps Swimming

Man, I can’t wait for the Olympics. Especially the swimming events. Patricia and I love to watch it. She even said the other day that she can’t wait either and “it makes swimming cool again every 4 years”! She’s right! I love that it’s back this summer. And have you heard about Michael Phelps? Man, this kid is awesome. I was reading today about how he’s doing in the trials right now: “Phelps entered six individual events at the American trials with an eye toward breaking Spitz’s record from the 1972 Munich Games…The 19-year-old from Baltimore also hopes to swim on all three relay teams in Athens, giving him up to nine events to chase down Spitz…Phelps holds three world records (200 butterfly, 200 and 400 individual medley) and the second-fastest times ever in the 100 fly and 200 back…He has turned in eight of the top nine times in history, including the world record of 1 minute, 44.06 seconds. Phelps holds the American record, nearly 2 seconds slower at 1:45.99.”

Wow. This is going to be a fun Olympics!
