Sure, this isn’t Brendan’s year, or his Olympics. But we hafta say, without a real Hansen-Kosuke Kitajima rivalry in Beijing, swimming isn’t quite the same (Michael Phelps’ achievements notwithstanding). Hansen and Kitajima–they need each other. Without those two side-by-side in the pool, gunning for the wall, all we see is a field of nameless, faceless athletes, swimming a second-class stroke that has the polite word for “boob” in it.
