Olympics: Phelps Wasn't the Only One in the Pool

Posted by Rod Mar

Here's a couple of shots from this morning's swim session that was dominated by Michael Phelps and the incredible come-from-behind swim he and the relay team used to win the gold medal and set a world record.

Kozuki Kitajima of Japan celebrates after he defended his gold from Athens, swimming 58.9 In the men's 100 breaststroke and setting a world record:

Megan Jendrick, who won gold in Sydney at the age of 16 but narrowly missed making the team in 2004, qualified for the finals in the 100 meter breast stroke. Columnist Steve Kelley writes about Jendrick today.

American Katie Hoff shows her disappointment at being out-touched at the wall by Rebecca Adlington of Great Britain in the women's 400 free, just missing out on a gold medal.

American Cullen Jones heads for the water in the third leg of USA's historic 4x100 freestyle relay swim. You can see photos of that incredible swim (I didn't say the incredible pictures, notice), here.
