My family and friends have enjoyed reading Jean Marbella's excellent coverage of the continuing saga of Michael Phelps ("Phelps beats Lochte again," July 2).This year's rivalry with Ryan Lochte, coupled with the distinct possibility that he might again compete in eight Olympic events, sets the stage for an exciting swimming spectacle in London.
Michael Phelps obviously has a lot of gas left in the tank. Never underestimate what he can do when he meets the water. Fans all over the world, but especially in Baltimore, will be glued to the television to cheer for our swimming champion. He makes Baltimore very proud. Let the games begin!
