Laure Manaudou hugs Frederick Bousquet while wearing a shirt that I believe says, "I regret nothing!"

Laure Manaudou's t-shirt read: "Non, rien de rien, non, je ne regrette rien" - I think it translates to "I regret nothing." Even the Alta Vista Babelfish translation is having. Well acording to, Fred Bousquet, the fastest 100-free swimmer in the world, is Laure Manadou's boyfriend. I hope he inpsires her to swim again.

At work I was asked to help out and learn either French or German since we have Vodafone and a couple of French telecom companies as our accounts. I don't think I have the IQ to learn German since I can barely puncuate in English as it is and since the French have some mighty fast swimmers as of late, Learning French is starting to look pretty good to me.

You should look around through some of the podcasts in itunes for French stuff. There's a lot of stuff you can download for free to get used to the way the language sounds.

After all the troubles Manadou has had (some of which were admittedly of her own making), that's really the only attitude she can take. I hope she really feels that way, I hope she has peace of mind, and I hope she swims again too. Her old records of 4:02.1 and 1:55.5 still compare very favorably to the current, new- suited records.

The only problem is, if she stays with Bousequet, Auburn is not a good place for her to train as they are basicaly just a sprint program. She would be best suited by an NBAC-type program.
