Jason Lezak placed 6th in the 100-Free final swimming a 48.88 which was good enough to send him to his fourth Olympic games. As far as I am concerned this is another "Jason Lezak moment!" After failing to qualify yesterday in the 100-free, he was given a second chance when Ryan Lochte bowed out of the final thereby allowing Jason another shot at Olympic glory. The race was close with the top 7-finishers swimming 48s but Jason squeezed in with a 6th place spot.
A very inspiring Swim, Jason!
The is the least talked about story of these 2012 Olympic trials, Jason Lezak, like Michael Phelps, will be attending his fourth Olympic games. Missy Franklin was barely a year-old when Jason first swam at the Sydney Games in 2000.
