    Funniest bit of all wasn't shown.

    He was in the middle lane so to get out of the pool he tried to swim under the ropes. He was so exhausted after his efforts that he nearly drowned trying to accomplish this feat.

    I seem to recall an amazing crowd response when he finally made 'dry land'.

    Brilliant memory!
