Merry Christmas and peace to all our readers around the world. SwimVortex continues a countdown of the most significant swimming stories of Olympic Year 2016. Today, American sprinters Anthony Ervin and Simone Manuel, respectively the Olympic 50m freestyle champion 16 years after he first claimed that title and the Olympic 100m freestyle champion who in 2016 became the first black athlete among women – in U.S. parlance, African-American – to claim an Olympic swimming title. The point of this entry is that Gold is the only colour that ought to matter in the story of sporting success. One fine day.
