Ryan Lochte’s quest for a fifth Olympics — and redemption — probably comes down to one more swim

Nowhere does the past, present and future of a sport intersect quite like the swimming trials, which come around only every four years (or in this case, five) — long enough for teenage phenoms to become established stars and for veterans at the back end of their primes to become nostalgia acts on their way out the door. For Lochte, as for the other veteran swimmers here, the year-long postponement of Tokyo, forced by the coronavirus pandemic, did no favors.
