Are you serious? The judges/timekeepers and officials were from a myriad of nations! Sour grapes is most unbecoming!

The Olympic committe should investigate and disqualify Phelps for all his medals because the Americans had cheated.


If you have proof, do furnish it.  Otherwise, it's just saying.  I think Phelps and the others deserved their medals for the huge performance they had achieved.  In fact Phelps pipped Spitz's record, so does that mean Spitz has also to be investigated retrospectively by the committee? How?

You know when you look at Phelps, for instance, you see a great swimmer. His anatomy is shaped to swim fast. Small pointed head like a torpedo combined with broad shoulders like a stingray joined to lower limbs which if held together will hold the profile of the shark.

If anything, the americans train well and combine, as do the british, the use of space-age technology. They have admitted as much the use of special streamlined hightech swimsuits.  One day soon, who knows, hydrophobic (water-repelling) nanotech body cream could be used. Probably they have some software program somewhere that studies the water motion of fast moving fish like the shark, eel, etc.

When almost all are performing close to each other's human limits, the next edge will come from technology and technique.

In fact, why i post this comment is to say that after this great performance in sports, the next great performance must be in science, technology and management technique.  May China also do well in these areas, and contribute as she has done for so many centuries past to the betterment of world progress.
