Olympic swimming events
It’s great that we are winning these but seriously it is unbelievable how many events they have and how many chances swimmers have a chance to medal in something. I don’t see why there isn’t only freestyle as track doesn’t have the back pedal or side shuffle. It’s all about speed.

re: Olympic swimming events
Swimming would epic with a “hurdle” type obstacle in the pool…have them look like dolphins out there

I would also watch backward running races, would be hilarious

re: Olympic swimming events
I'd like to see them drain the pool to 4 feet for men and 3 feet for women and watch them do foot races in it. Same distances and relays as swimming.

50m
100m
200m
400m
800m
1500m
4x50
4x100
4x200
4x100 mixed

The far dive and Speedo throw were both distasteful and generally unimpressive to watch, so they improvised.

This is an excellent reason to not listen to anything you have to say about the Olympics.

Equally as stupid in track, and show me the last time any track and field athlete had 12 chances to win a medal. Only happens in swimming

Personally, I would love to watch a 100m backpedal Sprint.

It should already be a thing.

re: Olympic swimming events
Thank god we have swimming otherwise the Olympics would be awful and we'd be awful. We suck at team sports. Can't pass the baton in track.

Swimming is the best to watch and apparently the best thing America is good at.

There are 44 Events in Track and Field. I believe 11 more than swimming.
