FIRST No, for Olympic qualifying rounds you only get one chance because its just to qualify and they have to move faster than what they would at a typical meet.

Second, I respect him for having the courage to do that but that was a slow time.

Third, 1:06 is a slow time. considering you're in yard not meters. And That i can swim breast stroke faster than that.

actually thats pretty realistic..
my 100 free is 1:06.

So you're only around 10 seconds slower than the world record for women?

"'Holy crap he's terrible, I swam a 1.26 when I was only 10 o.O'
No, you didn't. Lol @ people on the internet."
actually thats pretty realistic..
my 100 free is 1:06.

i have a lot of respect for him, having the courage to go up there and swim even though he isnt that good.
but how on earth did he qualify for the olympic trials?
and if you jump the gun, don't you get to re-do it?
thats how all my swim meets went.

Yeah it was in the Sidney Olympics, but he didn't make it to the finals due to the rather bad time ;)

The guy comes from a country where the biggest pool is 20 metres. He learned to swim eight months before going. I have the biggest respect for him, for going out and swimming, and he probably can swim faster than most people laughing at him.

what's sad is that the guy's not fooling around. he was really trying. whose idea was it to go for a medal in an area they couldn't practice,let alone win in?

At 1:50 the commentator says "Well, I'll tell you what I like about the black guy..."

LMFAO racist much?

======================

^^ Idiot.

That guy actually went out there and did his best, he lucked out. I'm pretty sure this was for the 2004 Olympics (wouldn't be 2002 because those were winter olympics, and swimming in winter isn't a good idea)

As a swimmer, watching that just made me cringe. I don't recall ever watching this coming out of Sydney though.
