August 13, 2008: Swim and Gym - Double Duty
Michael Phelps waits for the start of the men's 200m butterfly Final.
When I got to swimming I chose an elevated position at the end of the pool facing the finish line. I chose this for two reasons - first, Phelps would be in the breaststroke final so I wanted to get his wingspan coming at me and secondly, his last swim would be as part of the 4x200 freestyle relay and I was looking for pool deck reaction facing me.
