She has to be very proud to beat Hoff and Pellegrini for sure (considering 400 is supposed to be Pellegerini stronger event)... although as said, Pellegrini went off with the wrong tactics, but the heats showed even if she did, then Adlington still could have won.
Pellegrini answers back with a new 200 WR in the heats and she dominated the field... so hopefully she can get her Gold in that event.
Floods of Worldrecords there. Don´t really want to speculate about it, but I doubt a little bit that they´re all because of hard training and talent only. German swimmers are disappointing, they´ve no chance against the absolutely best. As usual in the past years.
Hopefully Pellegrini will get a Gold. interesting to note that Bossini (who came 2nd fastest in the 200m breastroke heats) was 200/1 before the tournament and I tipped him in the betting forum each way, lets see ... Phelps is better than I really knew.
Deano happy now? Exciting WR-night it was, great to follow.
Number 5 for Phelps. Maybe he´s an alien, he swims his races like it was nothing. He doesn´t make the impression as if he´s tired after swimming one WR after the other. With now 11 golden medals he´s the best Olympian ever. Aged 23 only!!! What will he do when he ´s grabbed the magical 8 ones? He would have won everything then, he could stop his career.
What are the odds on Phelps winning 7 golds and getting DQ in his final event? This man has fins on his body and gills on his face. An unprecedented 8 gold at one Olympic games is now looking a reality.
If it happens the disqualification happens in the relay. But not so likely I guess. They´re so superior, they need not to risk something with too quick starts. He´ll get his record, he already could have in Athens.
In a years time they will award the 2016 games to one of:
Rio De Janiero
Baku, Prague and Doha were already eliminated. Doha was a serious candidate, but eliminated as they wanted to host them in October. Chicago is bookmakers favourite. Tokyo received the best grade in...

This can be the thread where we look forward to and discuss the upcoming olympics thread. I'm not what we're doing with regards to the Football (probably a thread in the WFF) but everything else related to Beijing can go in here :happy:
