London Olympics 2012

London Olympics 2012, “It felt good to actually have a decent swim,” said Lochte, who swam in a regular suit for the first time this weekend.  American Lochte used a strong finishing kick beat Dwyer by nearly two seconds and set a meet record with a time of one minute, 57.63 seconds. Dwyer clocked 1:59.29 and Eric Shanteau finished third in 2:00.46. Sebastien Rousseau placed well back in fourth.

The win was a nice finish to a frustrating weekend for Lochte who failed to qualify for the finals of the 100m freestyle earlier in the day.

Lochte earlier finished sixth in the 200m freestyle, seventh in the 400m IM and eighth in the 100m backstroke. He failed to qualify for the main heat in the 50m backstroke.

“I hate to lose,” Lochte said. “I like winning. I had to keep reminding myself this isn’t the big picture. The big picture is the trials and Olympics.
