The Morning Swim Show: Analyzing Vipa Bernhardt’s Court Injunction and Potential Field in Olympic Women’s 100 Fly; Tony Azevedo Talks About USA Water Polo’s Prep for Games

PHOENIX, Arizona, June 16. ON Wednesday's edition of The Morning Swim Show, viewers will learn more about the possible contenders in the Olympic final of the women's 100 fly and hear from one of the most talented water polo players.

Host Peter Busch starts the show by analyzing the recent court injunction in Germany that has put Vipa Bernhardt on the Olympic team as the third member of the country's 200 breast roster. With a final decision to be handed down this weekend, it's likely the outcome will send one swimmer back to Germany, while two swim the event in Beijing.

In Reaction Time, Swimming World senior writer John Lohn talks with Busch about the Olympic medal contenders in the women's 100 butterfly. Lohn suspects the talents of Aussies Libby Trickett and Jessicah Schipper are far ahead of the rest of the world, which could mean an Australian 1-2 finish.

Former water polo player Wolf Wigo talks with renowned player Tony Azevedo about the USA men's water polo team's preparation for Beijing. Azevedo says the countries in the USA's bracket at the Olympics looks a little tough, but the Americans will be ready to compete in August, thanks to a grueling summer of competitions and hard training.
