New York Times: Swim Veteran Lezak Still Has a Chance

At the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Jason Lezak, gave this generation their "Franz Klammer moment" which will live on in Olympic history as the greatest come-from-behind win ever.

I am very pleased that Jason has another shot in the 100-free.

From the New York Times:
"...Upon exiting the pool, Lezak gathered enough breath to ask Lochte, a multievent monster, if he planned to scratch from the final. Lochte’s answer gave Lezak a new lease on the London Games. No, Lochte said, he had no intention of swimming in the final. His withdrawal opened a spot for Lezak. ..."
