Great piece on reducing drag via The Race Club is here.  Thanks for the heads up, DJA!

Frontal drag is the number one enemy of the swimmer. Swimming is arguably the most technique sensitive sport on the planet. With water being some 800 times denser than air, the frontal drag forces that slow swimmers down come into play at much slower speeds than all other sports on land. For that reason, in order to become fast, we must learn how to reduce frontal drag as much as possible.

Are the TAGS results all screwed up? On Meet Mobile the 1st place time is slower than the other times. On the MARS website, the PDF results for Thursday only show two swimmers or relays per event.
