PHOENIX, Arizona, July 27. CHINESE officials are boasting that China will win the most medals in London. Most of those medals, they say, will come in swimming, diving and gymnastics. The United States has won the most medals at pretty much every Olympic Games, though, and could continue that streak this year. The host nation usually does very well in the Olympic Games, too, so Great Britain should not be counted out. Which of these three countries do you think will win the most medals? Or, do you think another country will take the bragging rights? Go to swimmingworldmagazine.com/poll right now and vote. We'll bring you the results next Friday.
The Olympic Games begin tomorrow, and we've got a doozy of a race to kick things off: the men's 400 individual medley. That will be one of two races in which Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte go head to head, and we wanted to know how the two will fare in the 200 IM and 400 IM.
About half of you said Lochte will win the 400 IM, while Phelps will win the 200 IM. About 19 percent said Phelps is going to win both, while 18 percent said Lochte will win both. And 12 percent said Lochte will win the 200 IM, while Phelps will take gold in the 400 IM. We'll find out how this all shakes out beginning tomorrow.
