Complete disaster for Australia in the pool. 20 medals in Beijing, 8 in London so far. Japan has improved from 5 medals to 9 medals.

This will be an Olympics to forget for Australia.

as asia improves its standings, australia may be a fading power. i like how the chinese are being coached by australians in australia. they are just not in form though when the competition has been so stiff this year.

Michael Phelps looks to close career with 18th gold medal

One more race. Two more laps. And, in all likelihood, an 18th gold medal for Michael Phelps.

His final Olympics is turning into quite a victory lap.

Phelps will wrap up his swimming career Saturday with the butterfly leg of 4x100 medley relay, an event the U.S. men have never lost. That streak should carry right on with the Americans sending out an imposing quartet that includes three gold medalists (Phelps, freestyler Nathan Adrian and backstroker Matt Grevers), plus a guy who won bronze (breaststroker Brendan Hansen).

"I don’t think Michael is going to let anything go wrong in that race," said Eric Shanteau, who swam on the U.S. relay in Friday’s prelims.

Indeed, it’s unfathomable to think the Phelps era could end with anything less than a performance that puts him atop the podium one last time, with yet another gold medal around his neck.

A great performance from France - the story of the meet for me. The BBC just said Team GB's official target was 5-7 medals (well, Lineker said Golds but I doubt it was that!) so a silver and two bronzes is falling short - and I think many swimmers not actually getting PBs might be the bigger issue. Has to be question marks now too over having our trials back in March - might have been better to leave it late like the US and hope swimmers carry their form forward.

Michael Phelps ended his career with another gold as the United States won the medley relay at the London Olympics on Saturday.

Phelps leaves the sport with a record 18 golds and 22 medals overall. At these games he won four golds and two silvers.

In the final swimming event of the eight-day meet, the Americans clocked 3 minutes, 29.35 seconds.

Phelps honoured

Phelps was honored with a special individual ceremony after concluding his record-breaking career Saturday as the most decorated Olympian.

FINA president Julio Maglione presented Phelps with a silver trophy to recognize his achievements.

So in fact, I was right in losing my patience with the German swimming team early on - they haven't won just a single medal at these Olympic swimming events in the pool. This is the first time this has happened to the German team since Los Angeles 1932! A total disaster - and just as in Sydney, Athens and Beijing they now say that they have to improve their training system. I don't think it will happen, just like it didn't happen (at least not successfully) after the only slightly less disastrous last three Olympics.

Australia's result is maybe the most startling one. Just see their swimming medal record since their home Games:

Sydney 2000: 18 total - 5 gold - 9 silver - 4 bronze (2nd rank behind the US)

Athens 2004: 15 total - 7 gold - 5 silver - 3 bronze (2nd rank behind the US)

Beijing 2008: 20 total - 6 gold - 6 silver - 8 bronze (2nd rank behind the US)

London 2012: 10 total - 1 gold - 6 silver - 3 bronze (6th rank behind the US, China, France, the Netherlands and South Africa)

A strange development - especially regarding how many young talents Australian swimming had seen in the lead-up to and during the Beijing Games. Where are they now?

Britain's poor results maybe are more explicable - unlike for athletes in other sports, the pressure of competing in front of a home audience at the Olympic Games was probably too big for the British swimmers.
