The swimming portion of the Rio Olympics is now over, and once again, the U.S. showed off its dominance to the world.
Between Lilly King and Ryan Murphy are five golden moments, or one-third of the gold medals won by U.S. swimmers.
Murphy said the moment still hasn’t sunk in. He spoke a little about his big moments.
“I really didn’t feel that much pressure. My thought was if I do what I’m capable of doing, I stick to my race strategy, we’re gonna be just fine,” Murphy said.
Murphy was better than fine, he set a new Olympic record, so did King in the 100 breaststroke.
King spoke about why she pulled out the finger wag after winning her race.
“Oh just thought it was necessary, it needed to be brought up that doping was not okay,” King said.
On King’s Saturday night medley relay swim, her team won the 1,000th gold for the U.S. at the Summer Olympics.
“That was really cool, we actually had no idea,” King recounted.
As for Michael Phelps final swim, Murphy said he brought his A-game to help the legendary get one final gold.
“I really took that relay seriously to try and get him another one,” Murray said.
