1 Thorpe
2 van den Hoogenband
3 Davis

Hackett, Rosolino

fr400

1 Thorpe
2 Hackett
3 Neethling

Keller, Carvin, Brembilla, Coman

2nd to 5th should be a good race.

fr1500

1 Hackett
2 Perkins
3 Chervinsky

Neethling, Vendt, Brembilla, Filipets, Thompson

ba100

1 Krayzelburg
2 Welsh
3 Walker

Falcon, Watson

Falcon is a real possibility for Bronze.

ba200

1 Krayzelburg
2 Peirsol
3 Kozulj

Welsh

1 Sludnov
2 Moses
3 Calhoun

Pihlava, Kitajima

br200

1 Mitchell
2 Komornikov
3 Bernard

Sludnov, Wilkens, Hayashi, Salyards
Parkin

One of the tougher races to call. Komornikov and Bernard
seem the favourites to me but I'm including Mitchell due
to his untapered 2:13.6 a fortnight ago. Really could
be any of the above eight on the day.

bu100

1 Huegill
2 Frolander
3 Klim

Esposito, Rupprath

bu200
1 Esposito
2 Malchow
3 Poliakov

Silantiev, Rupprath, Yamamoto, Phelps, Parry, Hickman, Ramsey, Norris

Another tough race to call. Lots of good swimmers here.
I noticed Phelps is a 15:30 for the 1500 free as well - promising
swimmer.

im200

1 Sievenin
2 Wilkens
3 Dolan
Dunn, Wouda, van der Zant, Myden
Czene, Kruppa, Keller, Rosolino, Hickman

Talk about anybody's race. It's unclear what form Sievenin and
Czene are in - both probably past their best. Too tough to call
this one, I'm just guessing.
