#13 – Ryan Lochte
Ryan Lochte has been in Michael Phelps’ shadow for a large portion of his vocation, yet the New York local has a quite decent resume of his own. He has won a stunning 12 gold decorations at the World Championships, seven in individual occasions. He won the 200-meter backstroke at the Beijing Olympics, and swam a leg on two gold award winning transfer groups.
Lochte will be supported in three occasions in London: the 400-meter singular variety, the 200-meter free-form and the 200-meter backstroke. He will just face Phelps in the 400-meter singular mixture.
