Day 1 Heat Sheets Posted: No Hoff in the 400 IM

USA Swimming has released the day 1 psych sheets, and no surprise – Michael Phelps is entered in the 400 IM.

The most notable entry is that the Gator Swim Club’s Conor Dwyer is choosing the 400 free over the 400 IM.

Katie Hoff will also scratch the 400 IM, which is a real shock after how much time she’s dedicated to the events the last few months.

Ryan Lochte, surprisingly, will also be in the 400 free, though most speculation is that this will be a warmdown swim for him. There’s no real reason for him to want to swim this double at the Olympics.

The full psych sheet can be found here.

This gives me one more reason to hate Katie Hoff. I had her in 3rd in my picks

I was surprised to see Lochte in the 400 free. Is he actually going to swim it?

He’s probably using it to warm down

No kukors in 4im?

Yes, Kukors is in the 400IM. Mattie, her sister. 😉
