Ryan Lochte has won his latest matchup with Michael Phelps in Olympic qualifiers. Will Lochte top Phelps in London?
utmcw71689fan: "It's not surprising to see this. Phelps essentially took 3 years off from serious training after Beijing and Lochte has been a training warrior over that same time period."
PowCsonka: "If I'm Lochte I'm starting to worry. Phelps is closing the gap in a hurry on Lochte's times and could be peaking at the right time, like most of the greatest athletes do, to swoop in and take the prize when it matters most at the Olympics. I would not be willing to bet against Phelps in London."
John7234797: "Lochte is the best swimmer in the world although Phelps is still great. No way Phelps wins as many Golds as he did in China."
ejgarnica: "Lochte obviously has been training for this event that Phelps has dominated for the past two Olympics, and Phelps just committed to the event, and so although he lost, taking second place at the trials, you have to consider that Phelps hasn't been training for this even for the past three years, and look where he is now. "
dnasty3499: "Lochte is just better than Phelps at this event. Mike has no chance at all to ever beat this guy. "
psahni: "Either way we all win but my money is on Lochte. We don't know if he's peaking or holding back because he's never been this good before let's see in a few weeks. "
