Today was relay practice for the 4x100 freestyle, which is on Day 2 of the Olympics. The team has five guys who could possibly swim so we did a number of different combinations to see who would swim each spot. This is highly classified information so I won't go into order of the relay on this blog, but I will say the changeovers were great and the chemistry among the boys is spot on!
This will be Marcelo's first race and I can't wait to see him swim, practice has been very good.
After that we worked up a big appetite so we headed off to a sushi restaurant for lunch. We decided to go big and get the boat. As you can tell by the photo none of us went hungry for too long today. Really good sushi!
We capped off the afternoon with a press conference. Bruno got a chance to speak to the Brazilian media about his expectations for Rio. All along we have talked about process and being prepared to swim at our best. We don't think end result because there is too much to focus on in order to be at our best in Rio. We stay focused on the process and the result will take care of itself. With this being both Marcelo's and Bruno's second Olympics, I know they are focused on all the right things.
One more day of preparation before we head into Rio!
