    If you are a UF fan you’re likely familiar with Fahnbulleh in the 200m but if not you’ll wanna learn the name in a hurry. He’s peaking at the perfect time.

    This will be my first Olympics with no cable :ohdear:

    Have access to some channels through parental logins. Don't usually miss it, but I will be sad if I don't get much Olympics coverage. Hoping to watch as much as possible for that 2-3 weeks

    Why are all the swimmers wearing collegiate caps when they aren't in college anymore? Is there something about no sponsorship or branding during the trials?

    maybe, I think I saw a sweatshirt with tape over it. I’m assuming If it’s not USA sponsor you can’t wear it

    I swam kinda competitively growing up. There was a guy in my area named Ed Moses who only swam summers that just destroyed everyone in breaststroke. Think he began swimming year around in late teens then made the 2000 Olympic team at 20.

    Phelps’ first Olympic berth was in 200 fly vs another guy in my area. Was up huge on Phelps but gassed the last 50.

    Ledecky is just a machine.

    Phelps at least showed humanity with off pool issues, not convinced she’s ever drank a beer in her life

    Michael Andrew could destroy the 200 WR if he was smart. Has elite speed in every stroke but absolutely dies in freestyle every time.

    Ryan Crouser just set the world record in shot put by 8 inches. Dude is a unit.

    ...and if you haven't watched the 2019 world championships in shot put you need to. It was absurd.

    That looks like at least 107 kilo snatch for a very small female? Impressive but can we get some more context.

    God weightlifting is ridiculous. Attempting a snatch at this point in my life is frightening to think about.

    The two Jamaicans will be tough, but I think she can get it done if Richardson has a decent start. Her last 40m no one can match, just can’t dig herself too big of a hole.
