Great work guys

Why have some swimmers like Missy Franklin, Rachel Bootsma or Matt Grevers swum so fast in the heats? Why don’t they keep their energy for the other races?
Fantastic women’s 400 free to come. Unlike the men’s 400 free which was very bad the women’s race is full of great talents. For me the race for the two spots is between Allison Schmitt, Katie Ledecky, Chloe Sutton and Kate Ziegler. People don’t talk too much about Kate Ziegler but if she isn’t too far before the last 50 meters she will be very dangerous.


Beisel can get in there too.

What’s scary for the other girls is I don’t think Missy was wasting too much energy…she is going to be blazing tonight and tomorrow. Natalie coasted, I think she will scare the youngans with a little 59.4 tonight, then a 59.0 tomorrow.

The 400 will Be a a great battle! Schmitt will win, but second gets interesting. Im rooting for both katies (ledecky or ziegler) to take that second spot. I think Schmitt will take a record along with her Olympic berth.


Im thinking Schmitt for the win… between Ledecky and Beisel for 2nd
