Who Will Win Among The International Swim Stars At The Olympic Games?

In the SwimSwam Podcast dive deeper into the sport you love with insider conversations about swimming. Hosted by Coleman HodgesGarrett McCaffrey, and Gold Medal Mel Stewart, SwimSwam welcomes both the biggest names in swimming that you already know, and rising stars that you need to get to know, as we break down the past, present, and future of aquatic sports.

Who will win among the international swim stars at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo? I took this question to SwimSwam International Reporter Retta Race, and she delivers. I’m onboard with 99% of her Olympic Previews except for one. Spoiler Alert! It involves Team USA rocket Caeleb Dressel and the blue ribbon race.  Retta delivers here, and you can catch her as a pundit on the BBC if you live across the pond. She’ll be providing coverage for them as well.  Thanks to Retta for coming on the SwimSwam Podcast! She’ll be back to unpack her predictions next week…

Thanks Mel, that was enjoyable!!!! But with Retta on Titmus v Ledecky.

Think you looking for a Kieran Perkins win in the 1500, where he just pulls out of nowehere.
Only difference Perkins didn’t swim to his, just good enough to beat rest.
Ledecky has to swim to best to beat Titmus.

Why would you pick someone who lost at the world Champs in 2019 over the guy who won to win the Olympics? Not to mention Dressel went faster at his trials vs Chalmers. Hmmm…

I guess they should just adopt 2019 Worlds results as the predictions.

Or ya know use it as a measurement because Chalmers still hasn’t been faster than Dressels since then. So much hate for Americans you all are tacky. It’s sad.

Does it matter? Will the SwimSwam predictions affect the outcome of the race? Will they affect your life in any way?

Ultimately it’s all opinion and all a bit of fun. No need to get mad if your fav isn’t picked by one person.
