Swimming: Games return for 'Eric the Eel
Saturday 31 March 2012
One of the Olympics' most famous underdogs, Eric "the Eel" Moussambani, has been named coach of Equatorial Guinea's swim team for the London Games.
Moussambani became a celebrity at the Sydney Games in 2000 when he swam a slow 100 metres freestyle heat alone, having not previously used a 50m pool. It is uncertain how many swimmers will travel from the small African nation to the London Games, or how fast they will be.
