I think we are being a little unfair to Talbot.I saw this interview on TV
yesterday.The reporter asked him a question to the likes of .."What do you
think about the suspicions(Mary T,Gaines,Volkers etc) against the latest WR
swims by Inge De Bruin"
.
He first commented.....

"It's an unfortunate fact of life now that anybody who swims very fast,
makes a big improvement, immediately comes under suspicion.

He THEN added...."I think people do lift their eyebrows,"

"It really is sad that situation because good athletes, talented
athletes, should be able to glory in their wins and not be criticised
for them.
"It's sad in a way when she's doing so many great times."

I really have no problem with what Talbot said,but even here in
Australia,Talbot is now being critisised here in Australia as some
hypocritical coach accusing other swimmers of drug taking.Its amazing how
some quotes are taken completely out of context.
