    Hi Doc Lucky,

    FYI: Chris actually received 1 Gold in the 100M Freestyle with a time of 1:28:93 and 1 Silver in the 100M Butterfly with a time of 1:56:72.

    These times are directly off of the tags on his medals. Chris did not receive a 4th place ribbon.

    We are just wondering where the information came from on the blog…..

    Thanks, The Meyer’s
