"It is a symbol of Irish art. The cracked lookingglass of a servant." -- James Joyce
I Stand Corrected
I posted how it was silly to call the 400 IM the "marathon" of swimming when there is a longer event in the Olympics. Well, unbeknownst to me, in 2008 they actually added a 10K event called a "marathon."
So, we should probably call the 10K marathon the marathon of swimming!
