A national record for Beyer, in fact. That one has been out of Kenyon hands for quite a while now; let's keep it that way tonight!

Breaking 50. in the fly doesn't even get you an alternate spot anymore. Wow.
Declaring myself the 2010 d3swimming.com fantasy nationals champion until 99red says otherwise

IF Emory doesn't get second, and that is a HUGE if right now, we will look back on the 400 IM. 19, 20, and 21st places in an event they were expected to get lots of points in. 200 IM is 3 up, 2 down, 400 IM is just 1 up.

They are making up the ground in the 100 Fly however. Scarborough with a monster morning.

Production values on the broadcast are much higher today. Very happy with the web cast, except where is Tim Schutt, D3's traditional announcer?

...and Booms goes the dynamite.

Kzoo puts together a solid 400 Medley - 3:19.10 to Olaf's 3:18.90, including a 49.2 from Ellis and 44.4 from Fleming on the end. Nicely done.

200 free relay swim off for 8th place. If ever there was a "push your starts" moment, this is it.

All relays should be head to head, do or die! I'm expecting a great race.

Any word on how the swim-off went? I don't see results on the Live Results page.
What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn't he?

Not really because if you DQ in a swim-off you DQ period. Lots at stake though - Calvin nets a minimum of 22 ponts, SIT could be as few as 2.

FALSE. if you dq in a swim-off, you lose the swim-off, and then are 9th.

I don't think I'll be going to hear Rattle 'n' Hum on April the whatever-it-is. Then again, maybe he was just having a bad day.
