Beijing Olympics 2008 (argh the timing!!!!)

I'm looking forward to tomorrow when Jason Dunford will be participating in the heats for the 100m freestyle (18:33 Beijing time or 13:33 Kenyan time), though with USA's Phelps being on a gold medal + world record-breaking spree, it might be better to wait for Thursday's 100m butterfly heats (19:54 Beijing time or 14:54 Kenyan time) where Jason is the Africa champion.
Times for the 100m Butterfly:

Jason's Qualifying: 51.85
World Record: 50.40
2008 best times: Phelps @ 50.89

David Dunford is doing 50m freestyle. (I can't find his entry on the official website for 100m freestyle). Lets hope he also can pull a few surprises... on Thursday (18:33 Beijing time, 13:33 Kenyan time).

Meanwhile, athletics starts on Friday.

Jason broke 100m butterfly though just for 9 minutes or so :(
