Rowdy in Rio: Phelps’ Domination


We don’t know about you, but we’re having so much fun watching this year’s Summer Olympic Games in Rio, especially the swimming. In this history-making year for Team USA, perhaps one person is having the most fun — Rowdy Gaines, the colorful and passionate voice of swimming for NBC’s Olympics coverage. We loved getting his unique insights before the Games started, so we’re checking back in with him in Rio after the first couple days of competition. Rowdy weighs in on Michael Phelps’ continued domination, the rise of Katie Ledecky and why there’s no place for cheating and doping at the elite level.
