There are not too many styles in swimming. It's been that way for a while now. Live with it. It would be like putting an end to all the weight class fights because all we want to see is the middleweight and the heavyweight fights in boxing. Just ridiculous. Track and field AND swimming are the two true competitions at these Olympics. In fact, take out these two events and the Olympics would be nothing. Both sports bring tooooons of money to the games, by the way. That is why they hold very important and massive world championships every year.

Canada used to be a powerhouse in the pool. I remember the years very fondly. The program died and has been brought back with the return of Pierre Lafontaine to head the team. The results will be even more impressive from the Canadian squad next time around. You watch. The young crop is very strong.
