How fast are these athletes? Here’s some perspective.


A parody Bill Murray account had a great idea. In advance of tonight’s 200 butterfly final, I thought I’d give the folks at home a little comparison.

Parody

Right now I have the fastest 200 meter butterfly time in the nation for 2015 in my age group. And I’m second fastest in the world. I train 6 days a week in the pool with the Gulliver Masters Swim Club here in Pinecrest, Florida.  I eat pretty well. And I get my rest. Here’s my result:

 

Top in USA

2:24.30 (without body shaving). Michael Phelps cruised in last night’s semifinal with a time of 1:54.12 and will likely be faster tonight. Simple math will tell you he beat me by 30 seconds.  Or more than a whole lap. Some will say I’m fast. But the fastest guys could be out of the water and finished with their post race interview as I come into the wall.

No amount of cupping in the world can make up that difference.

GO USA!!!
