too bad he wasn't fresh for the 200IM, probably wouldn't have won anyway but who knows...

I'm so impressed that he came back and won a bronze in the 200 IM. A great night for Lochte... his first individual Olympic gold.

Lochte had trouble with his LZR? Just saw this in an AP story:
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Lochte got Peirsol back despite a problem with his LZR Racer.
"My suit came undone after the first 50," Lochte said. "I was just trying to control my legs."

Same here.
He showed the speed and determination to give Phelps a good challenge in the 200 IM at the Trials.

Too bad he wasn't fresh.
That silver medal should have been his.

I was glad to see he won the 200 back.
What a disappointment not to make the 100.

Aaron seemed like a gracious loser by the way. Not that a silver is bad. But the replay looked as if there was a slight glide into the touch pad.
Bet that will bother him for not slamming into the wall as he usually does..

I almost forgot... when he went up to his family after getting down from the medals podium... his father was in tears and grabbed his arm.

swimca...nope. i have attended a Race Club camp. Gary wants people to promote swimming and the race club. By displaying it as my avatar, that's what I am doing...promoting the race club.
If Gary were to ask me to remove it, then out of respect for The Race Club, I would do so.
