In my opinion Ian Thorpe should be able to race
the 400 meters because its Craig's race to hand over. Ian said he wouldn't take
it if he was pressured in which case he wasn't by Thorpe. Ian deserves this race
for he has trained up to it and it would be outrageous to see OUR best swimmer
in the 400 meter race watching in the crowd. It would also be embarrassing for
Craig to swim when he is so far behind(8 seconds) Ian in the 400. Really no one
in Australia could say that Ian isn't our best 400 meter swimmer.
