This site just keeps getting better and better, by far the best swim site out there. Good job!!

Considering that the meeting will be broadcasted also by USA swimming on their own website, there is an excellent chance it’s not blocked for willing spectators abroad. I’m also thankful for including one of the major cities in the world on your list of time zones, i.e. Helsinki :).

Fab job as always – but it should be noted that you did leave out the time zone for Paris (Bobo) & Brussels (Jean Michel) haha

Good luck with the 1 am in Finland. 😉 Finals are at midnight for me, hope to be able to see some sessions live.

Heh, thanks. A bit challenging but I have promised myself to follow at least one final session live. Heats are piece of cake.

At least the week after you’ll be able to follow the Danish long course championships at a much more civilised time 🙂

Works well and looks excellent! It’s even possible to choose your quality. This time I find nothing to complain about. Finally it feels that webcasting has moved to a present day.

47.8 on Adrian and 53.9 on Romano….

I think Adrian has a pretty good shot at going a best time (ie under 47.5) after his swims in Santa Clara and throughout the year. It’s the best he’s ever looked in season.

Considering Adrian last years.. Don´t think he will show up his best time on Trials.. considering that he is pretty safe too..

I’m assuming Rio was picked because for a few weeks in 2016, it becomes by far the most important sporting city on the planet.

With apologies to Sao Paulo, Rio is the iconic city of Brasil to outsiders. There’s a reason Brasil put forward Rio as the Olympic host candidate and not any other Brazilian city.

Same hours as Cape Town for me here in France! Prelims at 3 PM and finals at midnight. Cool, not too late in the night. Definitely much easier when it’s held in the East part of USA with the 6 hours of time difference than in California with the 9 hours of time difference.
I’m ready for the show! These will be my first US championships without Michael Phelps! The first I have seriously followed were in 2002 with the legendary world record of Natalie Coughlin and the big races of MP.
In Indianapolis I don’t expect crazy times, we are in a post-olympic year, but there will be many close races with possible surprises. The only world… Read more »
