Cesar Filho Cielo
  (Shanghai, CHN)--- In the Day-2 evening finals, many spectacular sparkles could be seen. Cesar Cielo Filho (BRA) has definitively solid nerves. First Olympic champion for Brazil in 2008 (50 free), he touched the sky in 2009 after winning the 50 and 100 free races at the World Champs in Rome (ITA). “Positive” nerves, one would say: you train, you make splendid races, you win, and you receive your medal (occasions in which he often cries…). Cielo has since then become a legend in Brazil. He is one of the most prestigious ambassadors of the Olympics Rio 2016. Two months ago, his world turned upside down: after taking his nutritional supplement, a positive doping test led to a warning from his National Federation. FINA appealed the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) and the Olympic champion had to wait for an audience held while he was already in Shanghai to know if he could swim at the champs: the verdict was a relief for him. The warning sanction was validated by TAS and Cielo was free to shine in the pool. In the evening finals in the M 50 fly, Cielo ranked 1st in 23.10.
.....................................................................
In four other finals, new world champions became: Dana Vollmer USA in the W 100 fly (56.87); in the W 200 IM, Shiwen Ye CHN earned gold medal with the time of 2:08.90; in the M 100 breast Alexander Dale Oen NOR won in 58.71.

I.Lendjer, SRB - great swimming in his first appearances in Shanghai (in the 50 fly qualification)... 

Shanghai
After winning the men’s 400 free at the 2007 FINA World Championships in Melbourne (AUS) and reinforcing his status of Korean star at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games (gold in the men’s 400 free and a silver in the 200), Tae Hwan Park did not appear in great shape at the 2009 Worlds in Rome (ITA), finishing only 12th in the longest distance. In 2010, Park seemed to have recovered, with victories in the 100, 200 and 400 of the Asian Games. 
.....................................................................
In Shanghai, he confirmed that he is back to the top, winning the first swimming final of the programme at the 14th FINA World Championships Shanghai 2011, precisely the 400m free, in a time of 3:42.04. It was the third fastest 400m victory in the history of the FINA World Championships, after the 3:40.17 triumph of Ian Thorpe (AUS, 2001) and the 2009 win of Paul Biedermann (GER, 3:40.07, the current World Record). At 21, Park demonstrates that he is ready for the 2012 Olympic celebration in London (GBR).

Park - gold medal (3: 42.04), China’s Sun Yang finished in 3:43.24, while 2009 champion Paul Biedermann of Germany took bronze..

Milorad Cavic: "I feel water under my fingers..."

M.Cavic
  (Shanghai, CHN)--- For the popular Belgrade sports media the Sportski Zurnal, Mike Cavic, Olympic Vice Champion and the World Champion, gave an exclusive interview in the Shangai's Hotel Hua Ting. With some kind of positive energy, Cavic reminds readers on the first steps at the World Championships held in Fukuoka, Japan in the course of 2001. He also used to mention the participation in the Sydney Olympics in 2000 when he was just 17.
.....................................................................
  “In Melbourne 2007, I have arrived after two months of preparation and was twice ranked 6th. Have to be mentioned that in the course of 2006, I almost said good bye to swimming. However, in Melbourne, I caught the ticket for Beijing Olympics."
Cavic also added: “The World Championship Rome 2009 was the spectacle. The gold medal in the 50 Fly, and after that a "battle" against Michael Phelps. Almost all people lived for that race and considered it as a replay on the Beijing 2008. In spite I've earned silver medal, I think the preassure has not been solved. But I learned something. That might help me at the London 2012."

Phelps faces the task to repeat Beijing 2008 successes... 

Shanghai
(Shanghai, CHN)--- Michael Phelps came back to the country where he has earned the name of the world swim king. The triumphant pictures of Phelps with his eight Beijing gold medals hanged around his neck cannot be forgotten. Now he is back with the aim to repreat the same positions at the podium.
.....................................................................
  However, one can neglect the cover pages of many yellow magazines after a British newspaper ran a photo of Phelps nuzzling a marijuana pipe in early 2009. But he stayed calm reconsidering his plans to continue swimming through the 2012 Olympic Games. For the media yesterday, Phelps said: "After having messed around for two years it's hard to know where I stand," as he started acclimatization here in Shanghai for the start of racing in the competition pool on Sunday. "I'm taking steps in the right direction and I know that, and I think that's something that I'm fairly happy with." 
.....................................................................
Now Phelps is 26. All eyes are steered to him and his new accomplishments. His coach Bob Bowman could do little but he has little doubt that Phelps can add to his Olympic legacy in London.
