    I was about to make a sig of him but decided not to for some reasons.

    He's a beast.

    I just watched that relay. And they killed the record. Killed it. All because of Phelps. The World record line was like 5 body lengths behind our swimmer. That was sick.

    What swimming record isn't being broken? See how they go without all their fancy technology.

    Yup. When they show Phelps from under the water, you can clearly see a propeller coming out of his azz.
    1 people high five this.

    A few things they have done to make the pool faster.

    They made a 10-lap pool and left lanes 1 and 10 empty to help reduce waves. The pol is also 3-metres deep insted of the traditional 2-metre deep pool.

    They have highly increased the level of chlorine in the pool, which combined with the new swim-suits gives the swimmers an eel-like slipperiness to them as they glide through the water.

    The lane ropes are newly designed lane ropes that minimise the wave effect from other lanes.

    The result is certainly incredible. In the mens 4x100m freestyle relay, the first 5 times to finish were inside world record time. There have been over 12 world records broken in 4 days. The blue riband event (mens 100m freestyle) has had the world record broken 3 times already and they haven't even swum the final yet.
