when i read his name on the tv, saying his russian swimming team has won the 4 x 100m free strokes, i rushed to the tv but did not see his face, is he still playing or he is now the team leader :confused:

if still playing, then he is super man, he is already over 30 right :confused:

Yoel etc.

Oh yes, he's still swimming all right. He led the Russian squad to a gold in the 4*100 and afterwards said that he likes swimming in Barcelona, thus reminding all of us his magical 1992 wins in the Olympics.

:bowdown:

The amazing thing is that he's managed to have all his titles without the aide of caps and special suits. Though, I think it would be smart of him to adapt to new advancements.

if he wears the ugly "shark suits" like others, may be he can even break more records :eek:

but i find the shark suits very ugly, make the men looks like old ugly grandma, i prefer the handsome Popov not to wear :angel:

It is Russia's Popov who claims gold as the swimming legend relegates van den Hoogenband to silver and Thorpe to bronze
