Cseh and Lochte are rapidly becoming outstanding in terms of longevity. Both will have a chance to win individual medals at four Olympics in 2016, something that has never been done I think (Frank Beaurepaire won individual medals in 1908, 1920, and 1924 though…). Lochte can become the first person to do this in one event (200 IM).

At the WC, both Cseh and Lochte could win their 5th 200 IM medal tomorrow. Only 3 men have won 5 medals in the same individual event at the WC: Hackett in 400 free, Peirsol in 200 back, Phelps in 100 fly and 200 fly (5 gold medals). No women have ever done this at the WC. Of course this feat was nearly impossible before 2001.

By the way, at the Olympics Lochte hasn’t overshadowed Cseh, at least head-to-head. In terms of gold medals he has, of course.
