Haas is gonna win the gold in Rio!
Guy will have to settle for silver.
And Agnel will be lucky if he gets the night swim.

I see Haas doing big things this summer. In my opinion no doubt a top 3 finish, possibly a gold medal performance.

The olympic qualifying time for the 200 free is 147.97.
1.45.91 would mean only 5 people would qualify worldwide (so far)
