They finished about a second behind the gold winner and Crocker was like 2 seconds behind after the first leg.
Exactly. Fault the coach for picking the sick Crocker to swim the relay final instead of the manic Hall Jr. though.

the guy already has like 5 gold medals, the other guy doesn't have any, I can see why he did it and I think that's pretty tight of him, I know I could never be in the olympics as I was analyzing my personality and realized that if I won a gold medal, i would purposely come in second the next race to get a silver and then third to get a bronze, just so I could have the complete set.
