2004 Athens schedule question - swimming


Recommended Posts

I'm organizing some of my DVD's - specifically my swimming HD coverage from Athens. I'm finding a confusion about the schedule. Wikapedia My link has the swimming ending on August 22nd with a no medal day on August 20th. On the other hand, Marcolympics My link has the competition ending on August 21st with no non-medal days.

I'm pretty sure Marcolympics is correct, but I'm not completely sure. Any input?

The BBC have finals listed for 20th August, with no swimming on the 22nd.

20th results: http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/olympics_2004/results/3534772.stm

22nd results; http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/olympics_2004/results/3534750.stm

So the old saying about not trusting everything you read on Wikipedia is right in this case.

Thank you for the 3rd source. I will remember BBC in any future confusion. I know Wikapedia does its best, but since it is made up from individual contributions, some of the details get mixed up. Thanks again.
