Re: Swimming

I love watching swimming but I can't swim myself... nothing more than doggie paddle

My favourites are Phelps, Matt Welsh, and all the Aussie girls. I like the other Aussie guys too but I prefer the girls Also, although I love Michael Phelps, in the Olympics I still cheered for Thorpey because he's Aussie

I'm going to Commonwealth Games too... but swimming was so hard to get tickets for - so was diving and gymnastics that I missed out on in the ballot... so I've just got track cycling and athletics which is better than nothing!

Re: Swimming

Give me Ian Crocker any day He grew up just a short distance from where I live now He is very down to earth , and patient with kids.

being a Perkins fan, I don't know if I could share the same love for Hackett.

although the Athens swim was a gem, no doubt about it.

The Croc is the 100m fly king, and he will claim revenge on Phelps in Beijing.

Above is a link to the man, Ian. Went swimming again yesterday with the eldest. I jokingly asked him to let me win just one leg but he looked at me in horror. Ok competition is good but I am no match
