Lane 4 - ESPN W posts "Summer on the Run. The need for the right speed. It's no secret that speed workouts are my weakness. "One-speed Summer" has always been my nickname. It started in swimming. If I was doing the first 100 meters of an IM in practice, I'd do that first lap of butterfly as fast as I could if I was only sprinting one lap. I still have dreams about it. If someone tells me to go hard, I go all out."
Lane 5 - The Australian posts "Thorpe tells his story straight in This Is Me. IN the lexicon of sporting nicknames, Thorpedo is a brilliantly evocative description of Australian swimming's golden boy, Ian Thorpe, who turned the sport on its axis as a 17-year-old at the Sydney Olympics when he won three gold medals. It was a tabloid-headline moniker that fitted perfectly and stuck. Thorpe's biography, This Is Me, has made headlines, too, but mainly for its personal, rather than sporting, revelations: here the champion swimmer is stripped back to show how fame at such a young age - he was 14 when first named in the Australian team - brought its own burdens, and how well-documented media slights on his personal life affected him."
