"Lochte broke Phelps’s world record at the 2009 world championships in Rome, then dropped it to its current level – 1:54.00 – two years later at the world championships in Shanghai. In that race, he beat Phelps by 16 hundredths of a second, and those two swims still stand as the first- and third-fastest times ever posted in the event. A rich history, sure. But consider that after U.S. trials earlier this summer, Phelps and Lochte actually owned the top 15 times ever." #michael_phelps #GOAT #sports #pub
