To prepare you for the Autumnal release of Michael Phelps: Push the Limit and coinciding with the FINA 2011 world championships, here's some video of Phelps shot with the Phantom HD camera that rolls at 1,000 frames per second.

Of course it doesn't answer the question of how you swim standing up, but we'll hopefully find that out another time.
