  1. Penny is almost like Phelps. She was 7th at the 50m turn but like Phelps, charges in the second half to share gold. I think she'll be the favorite to win the 100m in 2020 Tokyo.

  2. The race that made history in two different directions. I was also super happy seeing USA and Canada finally share a medal, and it's even better seeing them share a GOLD medal.

  3. living 5 minutes away from where both Simone Manuel and Katie Ledecky goes to college, i have the privilege of watching them swim whenever they have a meet there. They are beasts!
