For me it is Feigen. Although both he and Kalisz won solo silvers, the men’s 100 free was absolutely STACKED from top to bottom and to come through and win silver against the studs was incredible. All of this AFTER he fell to his nerves in the 4X100. He had something to prove to HIMSELF and he did. Congratulations!
