August has been a swim-intensive month for me. I've swum every day but one, something I've never done before. And of course, there were the Olympics, with Michael Phelps' amazing performance. Although the swimming has been over for weeks now, it's all still on my mind:
One last factoid: the design of the Water Cube was based on the geometry of an ideal foam, known as the Weaire-Phelan structure.
All in all, it was an astounding week of swimming, and there's every indication that Phelps will be back for London 2012...
It's hard to imagine someone eventually breaking his record of eight golds in a single Olympics. What's the record for most medal events even entered by a single person?
