Great Quotes and Boats

“I think 3:44 for right now is pretty good. I don’t know where I rank in the world right now. Hopefully it’s top-eight or top-10. There’s definitely a little bit more work to do. The back half wasn’t perfect. I probably have a little bit more to give on the third-to-last 50 and second-to-last 50, but I think once I get thrown into a tight race, I’ll be able to do my best for Team USA.”

– Kieran Smith, Tokyo bound Olympic hopeful, 400-meter freestyle.
