The show starts with diver Thomas Daley, who just became Great Britain's youngest Olympian in history and is compared to Michael Phelps. News regarding the man who prosecuted Michael Phelps in 2004 on a DUI charge also is brought to light.

The bulk of the show is devoted to the business behind breaking records. After running through the list of five new national high school records broken last weekend, host Brent Rutemiller discusses the process of getting a new record approved with National Interscholastic Swimming Coaches Association President-Elect Dana Abbott.

European journalist Steven Selthoffer also joins the show to analyze the slight — but noticeable — differences in pressure sensitivity for each of the five top timing systems in the world, a difference that could register different times and make world records "relative, not absolute," he says.

In "Technique and Tips," personal trainer J.R. Rosania details a series of warmup exercises athletes can do before a swimming or dryland workout to get the legs, torso and arms limber and get blood flowing.
