Only 12 swimming finals remain at the Olympic Games, and before the sixth night of finals at the Olympic Aquatic Stadium, Swimming World’s David Rieder and SwimVortex’s John Lohn teamed up to preview the night’s upcoming gold medal races and look back at the highlights from the previous two nights.

Rieder and Lohn recapped Michael Phelps’ historic performance on Tuesday night, when he won the 20th and 21st gold medals of his historic career, and they checked in on Katie Ledecky’s chase for history after she edged Sarah Sjostrom for gold in the 200 free Tuesday night.

Also discussed were day six’s four finals, which will include Cate Campbell going for gold in the women’s 100 free, a wide-open women’s 200 breast and a duel between Mitch Larkin and Ryan Murphy in the men’s 200 back. And of course, there’s the men’s 200 IM final, which will include the last race ever between Phelps and Ryan Lochte.
