Nice that Lochte won again , but will the order be the same in London? Too bad they can't send three swimmers or Clary could go too. It would be truer to the original Olympic spirit if the finals were filled by the best eight in the world - even if they were all U. S. Americans often.

Phelps might still pull out to concentrate on other events. Even though he claims to have regained his focus, I don't think he is as fit as he was in Beijing, yet he wants to swim the same load of events.

I guess that Phelps is probably at a very similar level of fitness physically, but mentally he can hardly have the same drive he had before Beijing. Still, he hates to lose and I wouldn't care to bet against him in any event he swims. Looking forward to seeing today's results - tomorrow, I suppose, unless I stay up very late., when it will be tomorrow anyway, with a five or six hour time lag.
