Shortly after the conclusion of the third night of finals at Olympic Trials, Swimming World’s David Rieder again joined with SwimVortex’s John Lohn to recap the evening of competition. Rieder and Lohn discussed the four straight finals in the men’s 200 free, women’s 100 back, men’s 100 back and women’s 100 breast that produced 11 first-time Olympians.

In addition to their analysis of the finals, the duo looked ahead to the three finals on the slate for tomorrow, when Katie Ledecky leads a talented field in the women’s 200 free, and Melanie Margalis will have the biggest night of her career with two big finals. And of course, Michael Phelps will be in the water in his signature event.

Finally, Rieder and Lohn discussed the prognosis for several American relays that have already begun to take shape. Check out their full analysis below.
