Bob Bowman was done, or so he thought. Something of the Michael Phelps Whisperer to the media, he can be counted on for insights, such as on Tuesday night after the Baltimore swimmer became the most decorated Olympian ever after winning a gold medal as anchor of the 4x200-meter freestyle relay team. Bowman delivered. Often emotionally, sometimes sardonically, he offered wisdom on the eventful night and then took off. But he came back. Oh wait, he said, almost forgetting about his other talking point, Allison Schmitt, gold-medal winner and Olympic record-breaker.

Katie Hoff may be out of contention for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team after failing to qualify in the 200-meter freestyle preliminaries this morning. North Baltimore Aquatic Club swimmer Allison Schmitt won the prelims, besting the likes of Dana Vollmer and Missy Franklin. But Hoff, a former NBAC swimmer, came in 20th, still ailing from a stomach virus. She said she may not even attempt the remaining event on her schedule, the 800 free, which means she would sit out the London Games.

It was a swimmer's version of a busman's holiday: During some rare time off last week from her intense training at Baltimore's Meadowbrook pool, Allison Schmitt decided to visit ... the National Aquarium. “When I saw the dolphins,” Schmitt said with a laugh Thursday, “I wanted to jump in.” Such is the single-minded focus of swimmers such as Schmitt, a bronze medalist in the 2008 Olympics, and among those competing here this week in the Indianapolis Grand Prix. It's among the final tune-ups before the qualifying trials in June for the London games in July.

Another day, another shot at a bit of redemption. But this time it may be for Tyler Clary, the swimmer whose public dissing of teammate Michael Phelpscaused a verbal firestorm as the two headed to the Games. Clary was widely viewed as the bad guy after telling his hometown newspaper three weeks ago that Phelps, poised to become perhaps the most decorated Olympian of all time, didn't work hard and was asking to get beaten. And Clary, little-known and headed to his first Olympics compared to Phelps' fourth, said "it would be complete satisfaction" when he did the beating.

The tension in the air at Meadowbrook Aquatic and Fitness Center during Michael Phelps ' 100-meter butterfly race Friday afternoon was almost as thick as the chlorine smell that filled the pool's lobby. From the moment Phelps hit the water, the nearly 50 members of the Olympic swimmer's North Baltimore pool crowded around a TV screaming "Mi-chael! Mi-chael! Mi-chael!" They issued a collective groan at the halfway turn, when Phelps appeared to be lagging behind. But he pounded through the last 50 meters, and the nervousness at Meadowbrook erupted into euphoria - manifested in an earsplitting scream - as Phelps, the most decorated Olympian ever, stretched past South African Chad le Clos and Russian Evgeny Korotyshkin to claim his 17th gold medal and 21st medal overall.

She's still the giggler who charmed as the sweetheart of the 1988 Seoul Games. But now, what has the 40-year-old Janet Evans laughing is her age -- or rather, that of her competition. "There was a 16-year-old," the three-time gold medalist said, her eyes widening at the youth of a swimmer two lanes over from her. She's "closer in age to Syd," she said, referring to her 5-year-old daughter. Evans, attempting an unlikely comeback after about 15 years away from competition, is not the only swimmer watching time pass before her eyes at the qualifying trials for the team that will go to the London Games.
