    China basically sifted their beach volley ball sand in a 1 million dollar process to make sure it was the cleanest sand on the planet. The result was a new sand that did not retain heat, was super soft, and the volleyballers loved it.

    Are they swimming in water, I have no idea. But Phelps is still that much faster.

    I personally think this is more human ahievement than anything else. Every olympics records get shattered. I have to admit, this year it seems ludicrous, but this is not unsual. It happens in track and field all the time. And swimming is notorius for breaking records during the olympics. I don't know why. Humans are just getting faster and faster.

    Or....dare I say are getting more chemically enhanced. Now do I think Phelps cheated? Hell no. But track has had a whole ton of issues with doping and I wouldn't be shocked to see it in swimming too.

    Lots of Olympic sports have doping issues. That said I don't think Phelps is cheating.

    I'd take enhancers too if I had to sport a speedo on television.

    You already do take enhancers, just a different kind. And yours may negate your speedo wearing abilities. :suspect:

    That's about as bold as saying Tiger's the greatest golfer of all time. Pretty obvious I'd say.

    I kind of think Jack Nicklaus is better. He has more major championships and he played against better players. I might give the edge to Tiger but it's not obvious to say that.
