Kris Kubik was on deck, a few UT men swimmers were in the pool,
Eric Shanteau and Michael Klueh
Eric is sporting a new graperfruit sized Olympic Tattoo with wings over his right shoulder blade.

Russell Mark from US Swimming was on deck filming swimmers underwater, I had a nice talk with him I asked him about Michael Phelps going deeper off turns when he streamline dolphin kicks (SDK's) long. Particularly off his last turns in races. He said both phelps and bowman thinks it's important to go deeper and it gives him an advantage. Russell said Adriana Kukurs did it in her 200 IM and added half a body length on the field.
He mentioned you have to be very well conditioned to stay under longer at the end of races.
