After another grueling pre-dawn workout, reporter Paul Tenorio reflects on his two months of swim training and realizes he’s come a long way. He can now actually work out with the rest of the swimmers. (Insert sarcastic clap here).
Michael Phelps posted the second-best time in the heats of the 200-meter butterfly (1 minute, 54.33 seconds) Tuesday morning, and then immediately turned his attention to that evening’s 200 freestyle final — his first individual final at the swimming world championships.
On Monday morning at the U.S. swimming world championships, Michael Phelps announced he was giving up his experiment with a new freestyle stroke; Towson’s Elizabeth Pelton, 15, set a personal best in the 100 backstroke heats to advance to the semifinals; and another suit malfunction “exposed” backstroker Matt Grevers. But no world records were set. Meantime, Sunday night, Ryan Lochte left Phelps speechless with his choice of words.
On a night an astonishing six world records fell at the swimming world championships in Rome — unleashing the now-customary tirades against the high-tech suits believed to be behind them — the only final that did not produce a world record provided the biggest shock. The U.S. 4×100-meter freestyle relay team claimed an unlikely gold medal in 3 minutes, 9.21 seconds, coming from behind to, once again, beat the French.
Michael Phelps’s quest for six gold medals at the world championships in Rome almost ended before the U.S. men’s relay squad even got in the pool for Sunday morning’s qualifying round. As Ricky Berens, scheduled to swim third for the U.S. morning squad, bent over on the pool deck for a drink of water moments before the race, his suit — a Jaked01 — split significantly in the back. U.S. anchor leg Cullen Jones urged Berens to forget the gaping hole and swim for the team. And he did.

Reston’s Mei Christensen, 20, surprisingly posted the third-best time Wednesday morning in the 100-meter backstroke at the U.S. swimming championships in Indianapolis, followed closely by Towson’s Elizabeth Pelton, 15, who earned the fourth seed just hours after winning a spot on the world championship team in the 200 individual medley. Later, Katie Hoff made it into the 200 free final—barely. And Michael Phelps posted the fastest time in the 200 fly and 200 freestyle heats, but the top six finishers in the free were separated by a mere 0.28 seconds, suggesting a super-competitive final Wednesday night.
