Jason Lezak!

"The Americans? We're going to smash them. That's what we came here for," Alain Bernard. That was the prediction by the best French swimmer on the French men's 4x100 freestyle relay team. Gotta love "bulletin board" material. Now I know every athlete in the world tends to make statements like that and the USA is not exactly known for our humility, but oh how it made me happy to beat the French in this Olympic event. Congratulations Cullen Jones, Jason Lezak, Michael Phelps, and Garrett Weber-Gale. You guys did America proud! "A fingertip did the victory," said Amaury Leveaux, one of the French swimmers. "It is nothing." Well buddy, that 'nothing of a fingertip' is giving us a gold. The French swam well, the USA just swam better.
