    Looking at the current top lists for the 100m in 2016 (when the Olympics will be run), I see no clear dominance by JAM this time. Why should we assume the US must settle for 2nd? If they can get...

    I've always believed 8 should be the preferred lane for the 200m. People short-change themselves by being in the inner ones. I know it's a psychological thing to see your competition, but it...

    Bodysuits work well in the pool because water is very dense, so a small change in the drag coefficient can have a huge impact. You're not going to see anywhere near the same effect for sprints,...
