When trying to get an Autograph of one of the Pro's take into consideration, the emotional and psychological factor.

Try not to rush up to them before their heat in the water, they have mentally hyped themselves up and are focusing on the task ahead. Getting a bit of paper, book, magazine or some ones underpants thrust into your face to get autographed before a heat, can be somewhat of a distraction, especially if the underpants aren't clean.
Try not to rush up to them after their heat, chances are they might have just got knocked out and are pretty pissed off, the last thing they need is for someone to thrust a bit of paper, book, magazine or some ones underpants into their face to get autographed after just bombing out in their heat, especially if the underpants aren't clean.
