For what? Strength, stamina, speed
Competitive swimming experts and U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials prognosticators Coleman Hodges, Garrett McCaffrey, and SwimSwam Editor-in-Chief Braden Keith broke down the most exciting races - of all distances and among all the men's and women's events - between America's fastest elite competitive swimmers.
The trio was in consensus on picking the highlight race of the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials. It is unquestionably the men's 200 meter individual medley - one lap fast of each stroke, the sprint decathlon of swimming. The race has so many story lines buried within it. But, it ultimately boils down to youth versus veteran.
It is the most anticipated race of the meet, showcasing an intriguing rivalry between KAATSU user Michael Andrew and one of history's most successful Olympians of all time 12-time medalist Ryan Lochte.
