What a Race!

Last night, the US mens 4×100 Freestyle relay won gold by a fingertip, keeping alive Michael Phelps’ goal of winning a record 8 gold medals in one Olympic games.  What you may not know is that the four-man team was mostly made up of guys who did not swim in the preliminaries.  4 “scrubs” swam the prelims (setting a new world record, broken by their own teammates a mere 15 hours later) and the one “scrub” with the fastest splits got to join the 3 big boys for the finals.  I am tickled pink for Phelps and his teammates, but man does that suck for the 3 left-behinds.  The finals team doesn’t get to compete if the prelims team doesn’t do well.  So here is a post in their honor.

Nathan Adrian, 19 years old, 6’5, left the University of California to train for the Olympics

USA!  USA!  USA!

My newest crush Ben Wildman-Tobriner, almost 24 years old, swam for Stanford.  Wildman indeed.

Look at his V muscles.

  1. It would a be a little creepy. Although if you deleted a few of these comments, it would be creepy but wouldn’t inspire him to file a restraining order. I think.
