We need a 200 M (4×50 M) freestyle and medley relay in the Olympics. So fast… so fun… and they’re both straight out sprints. What better way to market the sport than with those TEAM events? In this case can you imagine seeing Adrian/Ervin/Jones/Dressel with alternates Schneider/Chadwick going for Gold? We might have been able to see Coughlin stay in for certain despite an off meet… For this former swimmer the 50s remain the most exciting event… I’m sure I can’t be alone…

I agree 100%. I was just saying the same thing. I also think they should have 50’s in every stroke as induvidual events.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
