Natalie Coughlin’s Rumba On Dancing With The Stars

Natalie Coughlin is doing quite well on Dancing With The Stars – she’s got the flexibility and athleticism to outshine the other celebs. Based on her wardrobe during the rumba, she’s also got a scandalous eye for fashion. Found via

I wonder if she picks her own outfits or if the producers decide for her. Maybe she’ll tweet about it! Follow Natalie on Twitter @NatalieCoughlin.

Update 10-07-09: Natalie direct messaged me on Twitter saying that she and her partner Alec meet with wardrobe and work together for the look of the outfits.

Natalie Coughlin’s New Website, Star Status Approved

Natalie Coughlin, swimming star and cast member of Dancing With The Stars season 9, just launched her new website (found via The Swim Channel on Facebook). Now that she’s officially a star (and a dancer apparently) she has a new homepage to get the word out about her latest projects and promotions.

Not that she really needs it, because swim bloggers (like me) have been more than happy to help promote Natalie. More famous swimmers = more swimmers = growing our sport!

Keep up with Natalie:

Japanese Teen Sets 100m Back World Record

shiho sakai japanese teen world recordShiho Sakai set a world record in the women’s short course 100m Back on the final day of the Japanese naitonal championship meet. Sakai touched the wall in 56.15, beating Natalie Coughlin’s previous SC record of 56.51 set in October of 2007.

Coughlin, who held the record from 2002 (56.71) and later dropped to 56.51 in 2007, has been relieved of the title after over 6 years.

In long course, Coughlin was the first woman to go under 59.00 in the 100m Back, but her recent record
of 58.97 was beaten this past Olympics by Kirsty Coventry of Zimbabwe. Coughlin (26) and Coventry (25) should watch out for this rising Japanese talent, as she is only 18 years old and has plenty of swimming achievements in her future.
