So at the 14th FINA world champs, we know that Ryan Lochte beat Phelps in the 400 IM final to win gold. Is it possible that This is signaling a new era in swimming? An era where Phelps is obsolete? Maybe not
Sure Phelps said he was unprepared for the meet but seriously, It’s world champs! No one goes to world champs ‘unprepared’
So we know we Lochte won the 400 IM and most people know that he went to and still currently trains at the University of Florida.
What many people don’t know is that the winner of the women's 400IM, Elizabeth Beisel is also a Gator. Beisel swam a convincing time of 4:31.78 and was able to finish 2 seconds clear of Hannah Miley (GBR) and Stephanie Rice (AUS).
I think it’s safe to say, if you want to be a 400 IM specialist & world champ, you need to make a plan and get to UF and train with Gators coaches Gregg Troy & Martin Wilby

Sorry for not posting in a while, I have been busy with exams, swimming and winning and unfortunately blogging hasn’t been high on the list of priorities. I will hopefully be posting a comparison between Lochte & Phelps and discussing who is the new king of the pool. I will also look ahead to the 2012 olympics and, based on performances of the FINA world champs, make suggestions as to what we can expect and who to look out for.
