The first couple days of the Olympics have had mixed results for Team USA. Already with a couple gold medals – we are performing well – but certain events are struggling. The increasing presence of Chinese and other new swimming competitors has challenged our dominance in the sport. Some countries may turn on their team for having a lackluster performance – but not Team USA. We need to support our swimmers and carry them back up to the podium.
The THERAPY-IV knows a thing or two about performing well in the water. For over 45-years, The THERAPY-IV has been taking people on trips of a lifetime like Miami Marlin fishing, deep sea fishing Miami and more. They have made themselves an integral part of their community through teamwork and local pride – that’s what is needed for this US swim team.
American superstar swimmers like Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte took a blow with the loss of a big relay race yesterday. As two veterans of the Olympics, Lochte and Phelps should be able to bounce back in the coming days – but we should still support them and let them know the United States is behind them. Michael Phelps pulled off a phenomenal Olympic performance in Beijing 2008, and is poised to become the greatest Olympian of all time if he can win some of the events he’s in. That is certainly something to get excited about.
The Olympic swimming team is more than just Phelps and Lochte of course; with dozens of talented athletes all making their mark this Olympics, there’s plenty to be proud of. It’s time for the USA to step-up its support for our swimming team and root them on to Olympic gold. The Olympics overall medal count is deeply affected by aquatic sports – so their success could mean the overall success of Team USA.
