the following is the 100 m-fly for those who haven't been watching the olympics. on this particular clip there is a line that shows up in red (at about 42 seconds into the swim) marking the current world record time. that line was green on the television i was watching last night.
keeping that in mind, here is the clip and the conversation that ensued while watching this swim live...
innocent one: what is that green thing???
me: that??? (pointing to the green line on the television)
innocent one: yeah...
me: that is used to show how fast the swimmers have to swim to beat the world record.
innocent one: oh... how do they keep from swimming into it???
me: into what???
innocent one: the green pole...
love and blessings,
