Just have to ensure you aren’t last in your heat and you are through. Expect to see some very slow times. It’s going to be rough for whoever is 17th.

There's no doubt that he's tightening up

So is Hosszu actually going to swim this 200 fly?

Seems like a bad idea – – she’s gonna need all the energy she has for that 200 final.

I forgot Regan Smith was in the 200 fly. 100 back and 200 fly is such a random combo. Is anyone else swimming two non-freestyle strokes without an IM?

Tyler Clary swam the 200 back and 200 fly with no IM in 2012

The unoriginal Tim

Yeah but he would have swam the 4IM if he was any other nationality. Or if Phelps hadn’t decided to do it for the first time in 4 years.

Clary was gutted at trials but he turned it into gold in that 200 Back. Clary must be the best IM swimmer never to swim it at the Olympics.

How come there is a late entry? Or maybe he was left off accidentally.
