Speech of the Week

Jason Lezak et. al

Translanguage Calls of Historic Olympic Split

delivered 11 August 2008

Hicks: France has taken the lead up there in Lane 5 over the United States. Alain Bernard awaits as the anchor guy. And Jason Lezak is going to have to make up some ground on Alain Bernard, who stands six-feet-five [6'5"] and can absolutely fly.      

Gaines: I just don't think they can do it, Dan. I mean, Jason Lezak has been there. How many times in his career has he anchored this free relay and [the] medley relay? But I just don't think he can do it.

Hicks: Bernard is pulling away from him...The world record is absolutely going to  be  shattered here. The United States [is] trying to hang on to second. They should get the silver medal. Australia is in bronze territory right now --

-- but Lezak is closing a little bit on Bernard! Can the veteran chase him down and pull off a shocker here?!

Gaines: Well there's no doubt that he's tightening it up!
