Lezak Among American Morning 400 Free Relay Swimmers

The Americans have assigned morning relay duties to Jason LezakJimmy FeigenMatt Grevers, and Ricky Berens, with Michael Phelps and Nathan Adrian (at least) starting off straight through to the finals.

As for the Australians, they’ve chosen to go with close to a full relay early on. James MagnussenJames RobertsTommaso D’Orsogna, and Cameron McEvoy taking prelims duties for the favorites. Magnussen and Roberts are the two best 100 freestylers in the world this year, and two fastest ever in textile suits.

France’s relay, as promised, is Alain BernardClement LefertAmaury Leveaux, and Jeremy Stravius.

And the other interesting lineup is the Brazilians, who have again gambled and left Cesar Cielo out of the prelims. They will go with Bruno FratusNicholas dos SantosNicolas Oliveira, and Marcelo Chierighini.

Shouldn’t Cullen Jones get a spot in the final, too?

Outside of Fiegen and Lezak going like, 47s or something it seems like he’d have a solid claim.

Welp. Grevers went 47.54? That’s not too shabby.

And all the splits just went away on the results site, so I’m just going to continue talking to myself.

That should put Lezak at around 48.0

Yup, 48.04.

Sooooooooooooo the official splits are 48.49 for Fiegen, 47.54 for Grevers, 48.52 for Berens and 48.04 for Lezak.

It’s gotta be Phelps, Adrian, Jones and Grevers.

JUNKERS23 , your line up for final is the best one possible it seems . 47.54 for Grevers is grt ;;; I beleive in this guy for months and months and now he shows up to be so fast on 100 back and 100 free . Owesome .
So Phelps , Grevers , Jones and Adrian is a fabulous team to put in final actually . The french or the russians can’t come so close to the Us .

Except for the way back.. Where Phelps probably looks at Maggie’s toes.

Nice split from Grevers, he’ll have to conserve himself in the 100 back semis – not a big turnaround there.

He can do it. Coutts did it yesterday.
