Well, it looks like someone read my blog while warming up head-bobbing to Weezy in the ready room. While some here at Swim Brief were having a solo swimgasm over the Danes and the Chinese the rest of us were having a collective, sustained swimgasm over the Men's 200 Free.
Lochte won. To rehash my analogy from yesterday, Lochte followed up his warning shots in Irvine with a full-frontal assault this morning. It was a great race. ** Phelps was leading the first 50 but at 100m, that 3rd wall, Lochte came bustin' out like a stripper out of a bachelor party cake and that was it. Phelps was close, only .35 seconds behind Lochte and Herr Biedermann finished with bronze at 1.44.88.
** I didn't know it was a great race until later. The Universal Sports 'live' feed didn't work for anyone. For $9.99 all I've gotten so far is a spinning circle on my screen and an ulcer. By the time I found my way to the Euro Sport feed the race was over. Why can't we have a pay per view option through our cable/satellite providers? Why am I paying for an online feed, anyways? This must be how Tea Party members feel. I'm a GD American. It should be my Constitutional right to have free and effective swimming coverage.
Congrats to both Michael Fred and Ryan Steven. They meet again for the 200IM.
