classify distances differently. I just thought I would post this
because I found it interesting. Some areas (Pacific and South America
were left out not by design but because I didn't know. Feel free to add
if you want.
In the US/Canada, we have Sprints, Oly's, 1/2IM and IM as more or less
In Europe (at least mainland) people talk about 1/4, 1/2, and full IMs.
Personally, I like the European designations better since it is based on
one standard length (IM). On the other hand, I really don't care too
much, I just want to race them, not debate them.
