I kinda want one of those USA swim team warmup coats now.
Mixed medley relay final is coming up. Dumb question: If you can put any gender on any two strokes, wouldn’t it make more sense to put the women on the faster strokes (freestyle and butterfly)?
The US did not plan this relay well
In theory it doesn't matter. You want your fastest people for each event, while also calculating for the approximate differences between your best person in a given discipline versus who you think the other teams will commit.I don't get the strategy for this. You want to put your men first to get that big lead right?
