This Can't Be Real . . . Can It?

According to CNN, a swim coach in Darwin, Australia has found a novel way to encourage his swimmers to move a bit faster. He simply tosses a hungry crocodile in after them.

Supposedly he makes sure that the kids have enough of a head start that the crocodile couldn't possibly catch up. But what if someone gets a cramp?!?

Don't believe me? Check here.

Of course if you want to try swimming with crocodiles, you can always pay a visit to Crocosaurus Cove (shown above)!

that has to be a violation of at least a dozen laws.

That is ridiculous!
That may not necessarily make the swimmers swim faster, it will make them panic and lose control and balance!

I predict a law suit in the near future for this man.

I would hate if Anna (my swim coach) did that! lol
What happens when you have to sircle swim or do fifties? (That is when you swim to the other side and then back) AHHH! THANK YOU ANNA!
I'm printing this out for her anyway though.

Don't you get arrested for that kind of thing? I would have to say that coach either really really wants to win, or doesn't like the swimmers to much.

- UU, I'm sure you'll be alright. Where would your swim coach get a real hungry crocodile anyway?Lol

i know this is random, but i'm kinda happy they didn't make a kiki strike movie. because then some of those bozo americans will just screw it up as they did in other movies. (Like let the right one in and twilight. good books, but some stories should just stay on the page.)

I'm an aussie, and personally, i think that is CRAP. No offence.
Seriously, I haven't heard of anyone doing that.

You're just jealous you guys don't have as good swimmers :P

LOL And if it's true, thankyou for putting it out there. I'm sure that's illegal.

I think Flower Child is right. And I agree with ATCloak.

ZOMG Steve Irwin is back from the dead!!!11one

Back in reality I think that story is very unlikely for many reasons including 1)it takes many people to move a large crocodile and 2) chlorine in a swimming pool would be bad for the croc.

A torn cloak: First off, cool name! Second off, I totally agree! I know it would make KS get a lot of readers, but it would also mess it up. I also think that it would be really hard to film.

Lioness: Oops!

PS: Don't you think the oops looks funny written? really random

why does this sound like something my gym teacher would (the very muscuclar woman gym teacher) she may be wearing lipstick but she still looks like a bull dog

i know this is random but i just had a no-gangs assembly in school and they showed us infront of our whole grade, as one of my peers gettting her myspace hacked on big screen and how that relates to gangs(apparently thats how they recruit ppl) well i heard that(from my sources) that if your pc stuff is encrypted no one can hack or see it(not sure if thats true)but i must encrypt my inbox anyone know how to do it?

Americans aren't all bad. Seriously. Ex. : Coraline.

I think that if they got the right people, and Kirsten was very involved, it could be a good movie. But it would be hard! ^x^
