Worried about the head height

Thursday, November 30th, 2006

New pool for London 2012 Olympics was announced few days ago.

FINA is not the biggest fan of the new plans. Cornel Marculescu, Fina executive director, has following to say:

    “It is an impressive venue, for sure, but we have some concerns. We are worried about the head height above the divers now that the roof is so much smaller. We think the seating capacity is not enough — smaller than Sydney in 2000 and Beijing in 2008 — and when the temporary pools are taken away, will the space be left open?”

New sites…

Netissä seikkaillessa löytää kaikenlaista ja nyt tupsahdin uimaseura Sharks:in sivuille.

Seura tarjoaa kilpauintia, masters-toimintaa ja laitesukellusta.

Kilpauinnin puolella on seuraavia tavoitteita:

Sukelluspuolella on tarkoitus saada vuoroa syksyn aikana Raisiossa. Ja Masters-uimareilla ei elämää taida olla vielä…

Yhteystiedoissa löytyy Petteri Paatos joka on myös Raisiossa valmentamassa. Sekä myös tähän Sharksiin ja RaisU:un linkittyvässä Liikunnax:issa mukana.

Onkohan RaisU nyt laajentamassa alueitaan Lounais-Suomessa vaikka eikö se olisi ollut helpompi tehdä ilman uutta seuraa?

Uimaliiton jäsenseurana Sharks ei vielä ole…

Olympian Kitajima bids to salvage swimming career

    Double Olympic champion Kosuke Kitajima will be looking to resurrect his career at the Asian Games following a dismal year in the pool.

    Kitajima’s future had been plunged into doubt after the Athens 100 and 200 metres breaststroke gold medallist flopped at the Japanese championships earlier this year.

    The 24-year-old will swim the 50, 100 and 200m in Doha to sharpen his preparation for next year’s world championships in Melbourne.

    But a series of injuries had taken their toll on Kitajima, whose chances of competing at the 2008 Beijing Olympics looked remote after a bust-up with his coach Norimasa Hirai.

    Hirai angrily accused Kitajima of lacking heart after suffering humiliating defeats in the 50 and 200m at the national championships in Tokyo.

    Even victory in the 100m did little to paper over the cracks of a calamitous few days for the erstwhile golden boy of Japanese swimming.

    “I was hanging over the edge of a cliff,” Kitajima acknowledged after his public dressing down by Hirai. “The coach called me into his office and told me my career was in danger.”

Joskus kun on ihan tosi tylsää ja niinku ei jaksa aina olla niin silloin voi mennä kattelemaan että mitäs Hanski tekee ensi vuonna. Ja sitten voi ihmetellä että eikö ne osaa edes yksinkertaista taulukkoa tehdä kunnolla.

Hanna-Maria Seppälän kisakalenteri vuodelle 2007, hmm… Huomaatko sinä jotain ihmeellistä…

Plus, no nationals, interclubs…

Kalenterin mukaan silloin on Championnats de France interclubs 2007.
