    I've been a big Missy Franklin fan for a couple of years now, but I'm perplexed as to why people are casting aspersions at Ye when it is really common for fabulous teen female swimmers to knock big time off in a year or two. Hasn't Franklin showed similar astounding improvements?

    Until she tests positive, she's good in my book.

    (And she neither looks like a pre-teen Chinese gymnast of yore, nor bulked up weirdly as so many of the steroid cheaters do.)

    Michael! I had been thinking all year that he'd have an easy time in the 200 fly as always but this would be the year someone finally got him in the 100 fly but this morning I looked at the start list and was like "actually, I DON'T think anyone will beat him." Glad my prediction was accurate!

    I bet Cavic is less than happy.

    A TIE? What's the tie breaker? If you drop their lowest split, Korotyshkin was faster so he gets the bronze, right?


    And HOLY CRAP, Missy Franklin! Doesn't look like anyone else was even close!

    The commentators are talking about how Janet Evans held the WR for the 800m for 19 years. That's insane.

    I'm rooting for Addlington here, but I don't know if she can make up ground.

    But, I think to be consistent across sports, your probably need to drop their worst split -- e.g. the highest the one.

    I think she's a bit too behind Ledecky - 2 secs in the last split.

    The teenager reigns at this game! Ahh well Rebecaa.. magnanimous in defeat, nice hug to the winner! She had to change her strategy to keep up with the WR pace in the beginning and looks like paid for the price towards the end.

    Well done Lydecky!

    Just WOW, for Ledecky! I thought what she did at trials was amazing. She just attacks from start to finish. Glad Adlington ended in the medals.
