Relay loss leaves U.S. swimming treading water in Olympics

Order was not restored in the Olympic pool on Sunday night. In fact, it was jumbled again. A day after Michael Phelps failed to get on the Olympic medal podium for the first time since 2000, he swam much better. But it didn’t matter. Silver in the 400-meter freestyle relay doesn’t matter. Sounds harsh, but it’s true, especially when the foursome from the United States included the two best swimmers in the world.
