I think some of theese swimmers are just plain dumb. There’s no point in saving up for finals if you don’t even make it

Not dumb, but a little too cocky I think. They’re used to being far and away the best with no one to really challenge them. Hopefully that scared them into making sure they qualify for finals.

Honestly, Cseh looked almost as easy as Phelps did at the very end. Cseh probably pushed it a bit harder in the breaststroke, but Cseh, I think definitely could’ve been 4:10 if not under it. Real shame

This is yet another evidence of more parity in the swimming world among the nation.

Has there ever been an african american US female swimmer in an olympics swimming final before?

I’m looking up Maritza Correia, and wikipedia says she was prelims only in Athens.
