note: michael phelps will be swimming in 4 events (though subject to change).. 100m butterfly, 100m freestyle, 200m IM, and the 100m back..
but for me the highlight will be the 200m freestyle for women.. with probably the deepest line up for team usa: ledecky vs franklin vs schmitt
schmitt is the defending olympic champion.. franklin is the defending world champion..and ledecky has the fastest time for this event among the american women this year and continue to get better at this event...
