Phelps doesn't swim the breaststroke. Sprenger of Australia got the silver.

Disgraceful stuff to cheat the legend Phelps out of another gold medal.

Come up with that yourself? If Hansen did it, like the others, he would never have lost in breaststroke.

If he didn't get caught, it never happened.

Had he denied it he would not only have been a cheater but a liar aswell. So, no other way than admitting to what all are seeing on the vid. Would he have admitted if there were no vid?
He should be stripped from that gold medal.
I agree. I was being sarcastic.

Flopping in football/basketball etc. is "cheating". Going consistantly over the time limit in tennis is "cheating".

This seems like the fault of a poor, vague ruling and a terrible enforcement of it.
True. Don't see the big deal. Even the badminton ruling was harsh except that I saw the video of their tanking and it was too obvious and embarrassingly bad play. In that case, the authorities had to take action. They could have tanked in a exhibition like manner but they were stupid enough to do it otherwise.

IF they all do it, at least it's a level playing field.

FINA changed the rules because of Kitajima
