Michael Phelps, the greatest Olympian of all time, appears to have been reborn as a spinter.
With his 48.8 100m freestyle at the Santa Clara Grand Prix and his 51.6 100m butterfly at the Bulldog Grand Slam, Phelps is on track to swim lifetime best swims in both races at US Nationals in Irvine or the Pan Pacific Championships in Australia. Without the 400 IM shorting Phelps’ speed, a 46 plus 100m freestyle and 49 plus 100m butterfly could be in the cards by the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio. But let’s stay focused on this summer.
My prediction for Phelps:
100m freestyle – 47.87
100m butterfly – 50.49
