by John Lohn
After a well-deserved break from the pool, six-time Olympic gold medalist Ryan Murphy took to social media to announce that he has returned to training and is officially beginning his quest for a third Olympic spot with Paris 2024 as his goal. If he thrives there, Murphy could move into the top-3 in men’s backstroke history.

010 BIG RACES: WHAT DID HE START? WHEN MICHAEL PHELPS NEARLY BROKE THE WORLD RECORD IN 100 STRIKES
by John Lohn
For all his greatness and breadth, it’s often forgotten that the five-time Olympic gold medalist nearly set the world record in the 100-meter backstroke at the 2007 US Championships. It was at Indiana University’s famed Natatorium that Phelps – on two occasions – threatened Aaron Peirsol’s global standard in the event.

012 BIG RACE: WHEN SPRINT LEGENDERS TOM JAGER AND MATT BIONDI BROUGHT THE 50 FREESTYLE TO THE SUB-22
by John Lohn
At the 1990 US Sprint Championships in Nashville, Tom Jager and Matt Biondi changed what was thought possible in the one-lap sprint: an under-22 race. After breaking the barrier first in the semifinals (21.98), Jager beat Biondi in the final with 21.81 to 21.85. Within hours they showcased the four fastest swimmers in the history of the 50m freestyle and brought the event to a new dimension.

014 BIG RACE: WHEN MISSY FRANKLIN GOES DIVING WITH 100 BACKSHOTS JUST BEFORE OLYMPIC GOLD
by John Lohn
There were only 14 minutes between the semi-finals of the 200-meter free swim and the final of the 100-meter backstroke at the London 2012 Olympic Games. With lactic acid build-up from the 200, Missy Franklin only had time for a few warm-up laps – at the nearby plunge pool. Result: She qualified for the 200 final the next night and won the gold medal in the 100 backstroke!

by John Lohn
Veteran Gary Hall Jr. and upstart Anthony Ervin, who trained together at the Phoenix Swim Club and lived as roommates in the Olympic Village, wrote a fascinating chapter in the history of sprinting when they won the gold medal at the 2000 Sydney Olympics 50 freestyle shared .

021 BIG RACES: WHEN JON SEVEN LAUNCHED THE “ALBATROS” FOR OLYMPIC GOLD
by John Lohn

022 FIVE AMERICANS ON THE BRIDGE OF INTERNATIONAL BREAKTHROUGH
by David Rieder

But who’s next? SW Biweekly takes a look at some swimmers who are now on the radar heading into this collegiate season and the 2023 long-track season that follows.
