So the Olympic swimming program is over. The story is of course Michael Phelp's extraordinary achievement, but from an Australian perspective, one of the major things to come out of this meet is the form of the Australian Women's Swimming team. The Aussies won 6 gold medals at the pool, and all of them were won by women, either individually or as part of relay teams.
So all hail the golden girls of Australian swimming!
