ROAD TO RIO: Olympic swimmers talk about ready room

Still frame from NBC Olympics video

Before Olympic swimmers step up to the starting blocks, dive into the pool and begin their mad dash through the water, they enter a much more serene – or for some – intense zone. It’s called the ready room, but it should be known as the ready or not room.

While Tyler Clary fell short of making the team for Rio, the other athletes in this video all qualified. Look for Conor Dwyer, Ryan Lochte and Elizabeth Beisel on WFLA.

The Opening Ceremony for the Rio Olympic Games can be seen August 5 on News Channel 8. News Channel 8’s Paul Ryan will be in Rio with live reports during the Olympics, which run from Aug. 5 – 21.
