Michael Phelps. Katie Ledecky. Those are the only names you really need to know right now.
Phelps just won his twentieth and twenty-first Olympic swimming gold medals (he has 25 overall now!), taking first in the 200-meter men's butterfly and the s 4x200-meter freestyle relay with teammates Conor Dwyer, Townley Haas and Ryan Lochte. And Katie Ledecky just won the 200-meter women's freestyle, a personal tradition of hers, I'm led to understand.
It's official: In competitive swimming, Maryland is the new California. That's going to get some knickers tied up out in Orange County.
Ryan Lochte's hair? Oh, I'll get to that!
