Lane 3 - International Business Times posts "Missy Franklin Decision: Will Olympic Swimmer Compete For Colorado High School?  Olympic gold medal swimmer Missy Franklin is weighing whether to compete in her final high school season in Colorado, with a decision expected to come soon.  Franklin, 17, is a senior at Regis Jesuit High School in Aurora, Colo. She also won four swimming gold medals at the 2012 London Olympics, and some critics say it would be unfair for her to compete with high school athletes.  Missy said she understands that argument, but the 17-year-old, who was known as “The Missle” during the 2012 Games, has received support from those who say she should swim for Regis Jesuit."

Lane 4 - USA Today posts "After long layoff, Ryan Lochte is back in the water.  Lochte, he of the famous abs, said he didn't think about swimming or work out for two months after London. "Nothing. I did not want to do anything," he said. "It felt kinda weird because I train everyday. You know what? I'm going to just sit on my couch and watch TV.  "After two months, I was talking to myself and said, 'You know what? I have to get back in the water.' Two months is a long break for me. I want to get back in and start training."  After such a long lay-off, the burning question begged to be asked. Are his abs still chiseled? "They're still there," he reported. "Surprising. All those cheeseburgers and fries, they are still there."

Lane 5 - BBC asks "Can British Swimming rise again after the failure of London 2012?   In the next month UK Sport will decide how it carves up the £250m guaranteed by the Government in the warm glow of London's success for the four-year build-up to Rio.  While most sports emphatically met the country's high expectations, one big ticket team missed their target.  “Swimming received £25m in the four years leading up to London and only rowing, athletics and cycling receive more”  Team GB's swimmers flopped in the Olympic pool winning just three medals - a silver for Michael Jamieson and two bronzes for Rebecca Adlington."
