Four-time Olympic gold medalist Dana Vollmer is making her return to the pool tomorrow, and tonight she tweeted that the color of her suit will reveal the sex of her second child. If she wears the green suit, a boy is on the way, and if she wears the pink, it will be a girl.

Vollmer is 26 weeks pregnant with her second child, due in July. She is swimming the prelims of the 50 free tomorrow in Mesa, and she told ESPNW today that she will scratch finals if she makes it through.
“On the odd chance I do make it, I’m not going to swim at night,” she said. “My plan is to scratch that. There are people at this meet who have been training so hard, and maybe they’re right on the cusp of getting a cut to qualify for world trials. What if this is the meet and the race where they are going to do it? I don’t want to take that away from anyone.”
In the ESPNW interview, Vollmer also talks about her decision to train more broadly.
“t’s really just because I thought it would be fun.” she said. “I didn’t start off wanting to prove anything… I talked to a lot of other moms who compared working out to not working out and whether or not they ended up on bed rest and decided I needed to be healthier with the activity I do…. I cleared it with my doctors. It’s just something to have fun.”
