Since there’s already a thread on Track & Field I figured I’d start one for swimming which starts today, June 25 and runs through July 2.
You can find the TV schedule here, though it seems to be every night from 8-9 on NBC for finals and the prelims will be on NBC Sports.
Phelps is swimming, in order of psych sheets, 400 IM, 200 Free, 200 Fly, 100 Free, 200 Back, 200 IM and 100 Fly. Should he make them all that means he could get 10 medals with the three relays. I don’t think he’ll make the 100 free, though he is seeded 2nd.
Ryan Lochte is swimming the 400 IM, 400 Free, though seeded 31st, 100 Breast, seeded 26th, 200 Free, 100 Back, 200 Fly, seeded 99th!, 100 Free, 200 Back, 200 IM, 50 Free, seeded 111th and 100 Fly. That’s 11 events right there. I wonder why he’s doing that.
I don’t keep up with too many other people, though Janet Evans is coming back for the 400 and 800 Free.
Hopefully there will be some interest in the swimming, there’s going to be some good swims between Phelps and Lochte.
