I thought it was amazing to see. We’re on Eastern time, so I even let my kids stay up to watch, but my daughter couldn’t hold out.

It was very exciting to watch and I am proud of him and all of our athletes in Beijing. My 13 year old daughter was having a sleepover last night and she and her friends were in front of the TV screaming and jumping up an down during the entire race. They watched history in swimming that may not be equaled or surpassed for years to come!
