I'm not too surprised Phelps isn't doing all that well. His heart isn't in it, and his "cherries on his sundae" comment made it clear.
Lochte, on the other hand... wow. Blowing the lead in the relay (and swimming the 3rd fastest leg for the Americans even though he was the anchor) and then not even medalling in the 200 freestyle. I'm stunned by that. He seemed poised to take the mantle from Phelps as the World's Best Swimmer and become a star in these Olympics. Pretty odd.

I have no problem with those things being considered sports (particularly table tennis), but I don't understand how they're still in the Olympics but something like Softball got voted out.
