Binge, Crystal and her Cronies decided that they would do a little sight seeing tour, and try their luck at training at 7 pm. Cunningly Binge didn't mention her ulterior motive to locate a Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop.
Mission accomplished: whilst Crystal and her Cronies were buying smoothies and fruit, Binge found herself drawn to a triple scoop cup of frozen deliciousness, (spot the real swimmer in this lot)
Anyway onto the pool this evening where you took your life in your hands as the world and his wife had the same idea. It was warm up carnage.
It seemed to me to be pretty obvious that if you invite close on 6000 swimmers for a competition from the far flung corners of the world they are going to arrive fairly early to cope with the effects of jet lag, and yes somewhat predictably they are going to want to swim.
it caused havoc with the pools electronics and as a result the Water Polo and Synchro competitions were suspended for about 45 minutes because of an electronics failure when the big stage started up.
