BornJuly4th saidLooking forward to Lochte outshining Phelps at the Olympics this time around!
It will definitely be interesting. Phelps is winding down his career, yet he is still very competitive and hungry. Lochte has been doing great the past year so hopefully he hasn't peaked before the Olympics.
Actually, I think the likelihood of that happening (Lochte peaking) is pretty remote. From everything I've seen, Lochte has been training hard core for a while now, and this showed in how he performed at some of the U.S. Championship meets before the Trials, where he was well off his best times and rarely won any medals. Now he's begun his taper, which we witnessed yesterday in the 400 IM where he SMOKED Phelps and took first place.
