Olympics Swimming – Who Are The Top Seeds

FotorCreated

The swimming event of the Rio Olympics 2016 is scheduled to commence on Aug 6 and will continue until Aug 13. Athletes from all over the world will be competing in the event and the competition will therefore be fierce!

As some of the most talented swimmers in the world make their way to Rio with the hope of bagging a gold medal, we thought we’d give our own assessment of who has the skills and the mettle to earn that gold medal. Here are some of the athletes who we think will ride the high tide in the 2016 Rio Olympics:

Michael Phelps

Phelps is perhaps among the most decorated Olympians of all time. The swimmer has an unbelievable 22 medals that he has bagged in just Three Olympiads. He currently holds the record for most Olympic gold medals with a total of 18 medals. And Phelps has shown no signs of stopping as he broke his own record in the 2016 Olympics Swimming Qualifier with a best time of 4:05:25. It is for this reason that Phelps is the favorite of millions of fans in the 2016 Olympics.

Ryan Lochte

Lochte is perhaps the most recognizable swimmer today. This champion athlete has won a total of 11 Olympic medals and is all set to compete in the upcoming swimming event in the 2016 Rio Olympics to increase his medal count. Lochte is one swimmer who can really cause a major upset in the event and this is why he deserves to be on our list.

Kosuke Hagino

Hailing from Japan, this versatile swimmer caught the attention of the whole world during the 2012 London Olympics when he defeated Michael Phelps who also happens to be his role model. With his passion and skills, Hagino has all that it takes to make it to the top in the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The swimming event of the Rio Olympics 2016 is scheduled to commence on Aug 6 and will continue until Aug 13. Athletes from all over the world will be competing in the event and the competition will therefore be fierce!
