Big Meet Results Finished

I guess that Pan-Pacs were only 4 days long... USS stopped posting
results after day 4.

In any case... I think that wraps up results from "big meets" for the
Summer 1995 season.  Hope you've all enjoyed seeing the results here.

If you missed any of them, they're all available at:
ftp://hcs.harvard.edu/pub/studorgs/menswim/other/95Summer/

Alternately, you can look at:
http://hcs.harvard.edu/~menswim/meets/other.html

Just realized we're up to around 6 megabytes of meet results text on the
FTP site.  Hope it's worth it!  I've also been re-organizing the FTP site
structure to make it easier for me to move from season to season.  All of
the links should be now up-to-date, and the 00Index files should be
accurate.  If anyone finds and sicrepancies, please let me know!

Yours faithfully,

-Rick Osterberg

Absolutely worth it.  And from all of us, a tip o' the hat and a big
thanks to you for posting these results.

An important thing to remember is that I'm merely acting as a middle-man
when it comes to posting results.  The only results I generate myself are
results from Harvard college meets.  Anything else I get somewhere else
(usualyl the US Swimming system), and re-post to my FTP site and to the
newsgroup.

If anyone has access to other big meets... you're welcome to forward them
to me.  I can offer them a home on the Harvard swimming FTP site.  But...
it's hard for me to post results that I don't have access to.

Rick.....a hearty thank you for posting the results of the Pan-Pacs it certainly has been worth it! It has
been great to be one step ahead of our newspapers!
Please recognise however the "world wide" net is not the sole preserve of the USA and I hope in future
to try to keep you posted with results from this side of the pond. I would suggest that the European
Championships in Vienna next week are a "BIG MEET" this summer. I know there were a number of
world class performances at Atlanta and congratulations especially to the US 4 X 100m Free Team for
their world record. Analysis of the FINA world rankings of July 20th prior to both the Pan-Pacs and the
Europeans shows across the Olympic individual events an interesting ratio.......as shown below:

#1 Ranking Men:         Europeans:      6       Pan-Pacs:       7  
#2                                      6                       7
#3                                      8                       5
Total                                   20                      19

#1 Ranking Women:       Europeans       6       Pan-Pacs:       6 (1 Chinese?)
#2                                      3                       10
#3                                      4                       9
Total                                   13                      25

Grand Total                             33                      44

Looks pretty close until the depth in Australian, Japanese and USA women swimmers shows up.
However I do believe swimmers such as Van Almsick, Egerszegi, Popov, Pankratov, Kasvio, Selkov and
Harris should not be relegated to a "MINOR MEET".

Let's compare notes after the results are in!

Is it true that Tom Dolan didn't shave for the Pan Pac's?  If so, I'd
love to see him swim against Perkins et. al. in the Olympic 400 Free
next year.  This could be an incredible race!

I dont know if he shaved or not, but knowing what I do about his coaches
(I used to swim and coach for Curl-Burke) I would imagine it will be a
great race.  Dont get me wrong, at this point I think the two Aussies are
WAY ahead in the 1500, but I think that a lot can happen in 10 months (at
least, I hope so).  In any event, Dolan and the Aussies will make the
distance events some of the most exciting of the games.

It seems as though Dolan's time in the 400 at Pan Pacs (3:55 ?) isn't even
close to his incredible 500 at NCAA's (4:08.75).  The latter time averages
out to 49.8/100 sec/SCY, which, using the standard SCY/LCM conversion rule
of 10% plus 1 second per omittted flipturn, works out to 57/100 sec/LCM
(57=50x1.1+2).  This works out to, at least, a 3:48.

As for the 1500, Perkins is simply unstoppable.  It is naive to think that
even young (Dolan is 19), rapidly improving, massively talented swimmers
can come down more than 30 seconds in a 1500 in just a year.

Let us not forget, that he is the world record holder in the 400IM.
He will certainly swim that event in the olympics.  He also posted
a very good time in the 200IM at PAN PACS, suprising even himself
by some accounts I saw.  He is not that far off the world record in
that event as well, and what about his 200 back?  I think, that maybe
he should do the 200-400 IM, the 400 FR and the 200 BK.  I think
that is his best shot.  So that gives him, what 4 events, plus he
should figure in the 800m FR relay.  He could probably fit
the 200 FR as well (all this depends on the order of events
naturally).   Lets face it, he will not touch Perkins in the 1500.
Chad Carvin had much better swims.  I think he could realistically
medal in the above events.  It will be interesting to see which
events he finally chooses....I'm e***d how about everyone else!
