They start tomorrow in Irvine, CA. I believe they run from the 18-21 with open water events taking place on Sunday the 22nd. USA, Canada, Australia, and Japan should win most of the medals. As AYS has pointed out Brazil will also be taking place, had forgotten about them.

I "think" 4 swimmers per country can enter the heats but no country can have more than 2 swimmers in finals.

The top 2 fastest times from US Summer Nationals and Pan Pacs in each event will determine the world team for the US.

China is sending only 1 athlete to Pan Pacs? :eek: Zige Liu, the big time doper who won the 200 fly in Beijing.

It looks like they have a couple women and a couple men, but yeah, not much of a team here - not enough for a relay even. However, they have a strong team of young swimmers competing right now at the 2010 Youth games in Singapore...have already won quite a few medals, including golds, so that's where their focus is at present, I guess.

Article in USA Today about Ryan Lochte (http://www.usatoday.com/sports/olympics/2010-08-17-michael-phelps-ryan-lochte-pan-pacs_N.htm)

Olympic champ Zige Liu was a no-show this morning for the heats of the 200 fly.

Ryan Lochte ended up swimming the 100 back and of course he made the finals tonight bumping Aaron Peirsol out of the A final. Lochte also had the fastest time in the 200 free.

BTW, finals start at 9pm EDT. Both Universal Sports and Swimnetwork.com will have live coverage.

According to this article (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/08/18/AR2010081804701.html), Ryan isn't going to swim the 100 back finals, so Aaron is in.

Lochte had an insanely fast turn into the last 50M of the 200M free, pulled away from Park and won, Park 2nd, Vanderkaay 3rd.

Ryan is rather monosyllabic in his interviews. :rofl:

So nice to see some skin on the guys after those god-awful full body suits. :swoon:

Agreed. Although I have to say I really enjoy the grand prix for that. Since some guys (including Lochte) wear speedos.

Thoman won the Men's 100M back B final even though he went right into the lane divider in the last 50M. :wideeyes:

Peirsol CHARGED the last 25M of the 100M back to win! He didn't have a fantastic start and was lagging for most of it, but pulled it off at the end. :cheer2:

He thanks Ryan for scratching: "I owe him....something.....after the meet".

Oooh, can I watch? :watch:
