Just watching the Olympics and after the 100 Fly final heard that Michael Phelps has decided to pass his place to Ian Crocker, whom he touched out (.04) in the Fly final. Crocker is the world record holder, the guy who Michael has woken up to every day as motivation and he lets him go to do the final Medley Relay. Hearing him talk and seeing him interact with the other members of his team, you know he’s a together guy.
When Bob Costas asked him what his favorite race was in the Games so far he said he was not able to narrow it down, but after thinking a second declares that he was part of 3 races in which the US went 1-2. You’ve got to respect that.
