On Deck: Watch Press Conference of Top Four in Men’s 100 Free; Eddie Reese Talks About Brendan Hansen and Garrett Weber-Gale

OMAHA, Nebraska, July 4. SWIMMINGWORLD.TV brings you a press conference with the top four finishers in the men's 100 free, as well as a special press conference with Coach Eddie Reese in the wake of Brendan Hansen's fourth-place finish in the men's 200 breaststroke.

Garrett Weber-Gale, Jason Lezak, Cullen Jones and Nathan Adrian talk about their chances in the Olympic 4×100 freestyle relay and discuss the final of the 100 free at the US Olympic Swimming Trials.

About one hour after Scott Spann upset American-record holder Hansen, Eddie Reese was unable to find many words to explain Hansen's final 50, only to say that Hansen was ready to help Spann and Eric Shanteau prepare for their races in the Olympics.

Reese also talks about training Garrett Weber-Gale for his win in the 100 free, saying he's not a strong believer in the training philosophies of his Weber-Gale's competitors. Whereas some focuson high-quality sets, Reese said Weber-Gale has a strong middle-distance background and was able to use that, as well as his powerful kick, to win the race.
