World champs Day 4

Day 4 sees, appropriately enough, 4 finals:

The men's 200 fly:
Can Phelps come back after being taken down by Paul 'Vorsprung durch Technik' Biedermann? Remember last year the Phelpster's goggles filled with water so he was less fast than elsewhere.

The men's 50 breaststroke:
Never a big fan of the events that aren't in the Olympic programme. I do however prefer long distance events such as...

The men's 800 free:
Hackett's textile record -alongside the 1500 free, the last standing- in serious danger from Mellouli. The Italian might push him though in front of the home crowd.

Women's 200 free:
Federica 'Lioness of Verona' Pellegrini clear favourite here although, for me, the big interest is as a marker for the 4x200 free where GB, the Americans and the Hungarians will be battling for Gold.
Comments below more than welcome...
