When swimming, Alexander Popov looks so at ease that it is hard to imagine his natural habitat is not water. His style, and above all, his unerring ability, have given the Russian sprinter unprecedented results in the shape of the Olympic “double-double” in the 50 metres and 100m. He even had his sights on a rare treble at Sydney 2000 but had to settle for silver in the 100m freestyle behind Dutchman Pieter van den Hoogenband, while he was a distant sixth in the 50m race.
