PHOENIX, Arizona, August 6. TODAY'S edition of The Morning Swim Show puts a focus on the men's 400 free relay, with an analysis of the potential Olympic field and an interview with South African Roland Schoeman.
After reporting news concerning Jessica Hardy's American record in the 50 breaststroke, and showcasing some photos from swimmers in Beijing, host Peter Busch talks with Swimming World senior writer John Lohn about the final race in the Olympic Preview: the men's 400 freestyle relay. Lohn and Busch suspect that four teams – United States, France, Australia and South Africa – will be the top contenders for the gold medal and likely world record.
Roland Schoeman has always been an outspoken voice for the sport, and in today's interview, he speaks openly about his missed opportunity to swim the individual 100 free in Beijing and how he will remedy the oversight. He also talks about the 50 free field and what he expects in that race.
