Mel, I hope you’re right about McGill and Phelps! I also hope Lochte focuses his program more for 2016. This 200 back 200 IM double just isn’t going to work for him. I say, with Grevers/Thoman likely retiring, that he focuses on 100 back, 200 IM (That’s the one he’s never won despite his great talent in the event, and it’s more of a sprint) and trying to make the relays (more sprint work could help his 100 free). That way he could decrease total number of swims/racing yardage significantly but potentially still win 5 medals, as he did in London. Sixteen medals would put him behind only Michael for male Olympians. I’m sure he wants to know what I think, so please pass that on to him the next time you guys chat! LOL!

Glad to see you eat your words on Lochte surpassing Phelps’ legacy, GMM. 50.7? I think he can go faster then that tomorrow.
