Boyle will be in a real scrap for Silver in the 800 which will be distant from Ledecky….

I agree, Felix.

Interestingly – Belmonte-Garcia, Kapas, Carlin, Boyle all swim their races similarly – A strong back half. Whereas Friis tends to rip it from the start and hang on…

I’m seeing 5 or even 6 lady scrap for silver and bronze…

Yes an interesting battle in the women’s middle distance events – If Boyle can go with Ledecky in the first 200 sje will put herself in a great position to use her backend, which was faster than Ledecky in London last year.

johny long shot

Biggest upset in the 800, Boyle to win, Ledecky might not have the experience to back up after winning olympic gold last year.
