Was watching it upstairs w/Dad, so only getting in here now after reading the thread.
So proud of Tera!! I had a feeling she wouldn't be able to pull off that swim off, but she sure gave it a go. First Olympics and she can look back on this and say, "Hey, nothing else I do will ever be as nerve racking as that just was." Not a bad experience to have and be able to build on.
As soon as Cameron laid back on the line marker and stayed there looking at the scoreboard, I turned to Dad and said, "The main picture on every South African Olympics Sports web sites just changed and that's going to be the Front Page picture on every South African newspaper tomorrow morning." Wow did he ever leave the rest of the field in his wake.
The relay was pretty amazing and Congrats to France!!
I also went, "Huh?" when I heard Lochte was going to be swimming it at all, but then to hear he's the *anchor*!?! Why on earth would you put someone who just swam a Backstroke Semi only, what 45 mins before that, on as your anchor? It didn't make sense to me and still doesn't.
Thrilled for Brendan Hansen's Bronze. He must just be so beyond happy right now.
Another great night in the pool. Can't wait to see what tomorrow brings us.
