Lane 1 - Herald Sun posts "Cate Campbell backs Melanie Schlanger's stance on swim funding. OLYMPIC gold medallist Cate Campbell says 4x100m relay teammate Melanie Schlanger deserves credit, not flak, for shining a spotlight on pay discrepancies within the Australian swim team. Campbell hopes it's one of the key issues on the table when Swimming Australia begins its much-anticipated high-performance review. Outspoken Schlanger was publicly rebuked by veteran Geoff Huegill last week after the Queenslander tweeted she earned below the minimum wage of $17,000 for about 35 hours of weekly training. "Have to rem (sic) that someone on min wage doesn't get an all-expenses paid trip to Shanghai or Manchester plus 3 weeks in London," the butterfly specialist wrote back in one of a series of tweets. But Schlanger - and even her dad - both hinted Huegill, as one of the luckier members of the team in terms of funding, wasn't one to talk."

Lane 4 - Courier Mail posts "It's sink or swim in the slow lane. AS A freelancer, I get to set my own hours. This workday flexibility is great, it almost makes up for not receiving superannuation or sick leave. One of the things I love to do during a quiet weekday afternoon is to go for a swim in an indoor, heated public pool. Some people garden to relax, I swim with strangers in tepid water while my goggles fill with stinging, overly chlorinated water. Each to their own."

Lane 6 - The Eastsider LA posts "Olympic-sized dreams to fill new East L.A. pool. When it came time to cool off on a hot summer day, a few generations of East Los Angeles kids have taken a dive into the Belvedere Park Pool. The plan is to build an outdoor, 12,743-square foot Olympic-sized pool, a 5,092 square-foot shallow recreation pool and adjacent “Splash Pad.” The low-slung, concrete-block pool building constructed in 1950 will be demolished to make way for a new and larger Spanish-Colonial style structure. But with construction of the new pool scheduled to begin next May, any aspiring Olympic swimmers seeking to practice and cool down next summer will have to go someplace else besides Belevedere Park. The new pool is not expected to be completed until June 2014, according to county documents."
