Summer 2012 Olympics: Mens Swimming

Written by: Gina Young

His body is primed , muscles pushing at the skin, being magnetically drawn to the water. Focus so heavy the air sags as the clock winds down.
And then the push-off.
Like a fish, flying through the water. Gliding and slicing.
A twist, a turn, a flip. A head bobs above the water.
Breathe in deep. Deep. Deeper. 
A win. A glow of satisfaction.

Dedicated to Ryan Lochte.
