I really want to know if him and Jack are friends or they hate each other because to me it looks like there’s some hostility


I think they are good friend, Schooling’s instagram showed them went to a lot of places, hang out together. They also posed their Olympics ring tattoo together after they went back to Texas.

Schooling is pretty intense, that’s for sure. He seemed angry when Jack went faster in prelims last year in the 200 fly. That’s just the type of guy Schooling is. And, it’s probably why he’s also a gold medalist.
