The grip is half loosened. Neither defending champion Ryan Lochte nor USA teammate Michael Phelps will contest the 400m medley in Rio. The 200m? Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, Ryan Lochte, Michael Phelps. Doesn’t matter which way you look: they’ve dominated the 200m medley for three Olympic cycles. One or the other of them, the 400 medley for a decade, too. Can Kosuke Hagino break the cycle? Can Daiya Seto confirm 2016 as the peak of Japan’s golden medley era? And who else might muscle in on the all-round action at Rio 2016?
