Michael Phelps finished second with a 1:48.20. Michael Wynalda won the B-final of the men’s 200 freestyle with a time of 1:50.47.

Yannick is a racer.


What a great guy! The more I find out about him the more I like him. And I totally feel his pain about last winter here in the northeast US because I was begging for a drop of sunshine too!


J’adore Yannick! I think his goofy attitude (along with that of Schmitty) is having a positive mental impact on Phelps, who seems so much looser since his comeback.

Also, thanks, Yannick, for making me feel better about my own raccoon eye goggle sunburn marks.

He’s an intellectual of the sport.
He loves reading and he loves philosophy as well.


For swimming , one needs way more than intellect abilities to compete at a High level . He is very smart , loves racing and has a positive attitude in life + in the pool !
