Day 6 of the Rio Games is complete. Just another day of once-in-a-lifetime memories.

Quite possibly the single-best day in American swimming history, and for some reason they’re paying ME to call it. Interviewed the greatest Olympian of all-time Michael Phelps, twice individual bronze medalist Nathan Adrian and 50m free gold medalist Anthony Ervin. Called the final individual race of Phelps’ career, the Olympic’s first- triple dead-heat – for silver in the 50 free, another World Record by Ledecky, a breathtaking touch of the wall by Maya DiRado to upset Hosszu and other assorted Olympic memories.

An exhilarating final Day 8 at the Olympic Aquatics Stadium, and my last day working with Dara Torres, who quickly became a great, great friend. Can’t imagine calling any more swimming without her.
Hopefully these pictures accurately sum up one last historic day in the pool for Team USA.

Day 9 from Rio in the books, and while I’m up and on my second bus ride this morning at 930am after 3 hours of sleep, it’s the Olympics. I’ll sleep in September.
Thanks to DBBC’s Patrick Kinas for these capcom photos.
