As this summer draws to a close, the 2012 London Olympic Games loom just over the horizon.
With athletes all over the world preparing for the games, this is the perfect time to make predictions about the lucky few who will receive the highest honor any athlete can get: a chance at an Olympic gold medal.
Already, at the 2011 Shanghai World Championships, he became the first person to set a world record since the banning of the high-tech suits.
Ryan has said that he has thought about doing nine events in London, an unprecedented act, and I honestly think he has a chance to win all of them.
That's more medals than most Olympians get in their entire lives.
However, Phelps may not be as dominant this this upcoming Olympics.
He has the short course ( 25-meter length pool, not 50 meter ) world record in the 100-meter backstroke.
Thoman was also on the gold medal winning 4x100 meter medley relay at the 2011 world champs.
Thoman also has to deal with the two French backstrokers mentioned before.
The US men's swim team was the dominant pool force at the Beijing Olympics, raking in 31 medals and 12 golds.
The problem is that the 2008 team was largely composed of veteran competitors, and many of them have either retired or faded away (for example: Aaron Peirsol, 2008 Olympic gold medalist in the 100-meter backstroke, is now retired).
After Phelps and Lochte, the crop of USA swimmers expected to win multiple golds runs thin.
But 22-year-old Nathan Adrian, winner of a gold and bronze at the 2011 world champs, has shined and established himself as the USA's best sprint freestyler.
