After lackluster performances at British Olympic Trials and the European Championships, Scottish swimmer Dan Wallace is making a move to Millfield.
After more than a quarter-of-a-century coaching with Gregg Troy, Martyn Wilby is stepping away from college coaching.
Less than a month after the pool record board was decimated during the NCAA championships, the best swimmers in the country will return to Atlanta’s McAuley Aquatic Center on Georgia Tech’s campus to participate in the Atlanta Classic.
Troy believes Phelps may understand better than anyone else that it doesn’t matter how fast he is on a given day at an in-season training meet, it only matters that he’s fast on the right day.

“I don’t think it’s any top secret he’s gonna swim the 50 and the 100 freestyles,” said Troy. “He’s qualified in the 100 fly, 200 free, and 100 breast. We’ll play around a bit with those.”
