As you all know, I am a HUGE fan of the Summer Olympics.  So, I spent Sunday afternoon combing through Sports Illustrated’s Rio 2016 issue, which comes with medal predictions for each Olympic event.

And I was so excited to see that the magazine chose Lilly King to win Gold in the 100-meter breaststroke event.  Lilly cemented her position as race favorite last month when she stormed to victory in the event at the U.S. Trials.  And SI took note.  They predict that Lilly will swim her way to Olympic glory ahead of Silver Medalist Ruta Meilutyte from Lithuania and Lilly’s own teammate, Katie Meili from the U.S.
