OMAHA, Neb. -- When Anthony Ervin was Caeleb Dressels age, he was on the cusp of winning an Olympic gold medal.Sixteen years later, theyll pursue one together. It wont be easy.The U.S. lineup for the mens 4x100-meter freestyle relay that will try to reclaim greatness this summer in Rio is a microcosm of the way the team is shaping up as a whole: experience and fresh muscle shoulder to shoulder.It also features perhaps the most amiable sprinter in recent history in Nathan Adrian. The reigning Olympic gold medalist in the individual 100 freestyle hit the touchpad first in 47.72 seconds in Thursdays final. He called himself an old guy in post-race comments, but at 27, he is exactly midway between his prospective relay-mates in age.Adrian will be joined by speedsters separated by less than a second in the pool and almost a full generation on their birth certificates: the 19-year-old Dressel, a rising junior at the University of Florida who rewrote the NCAA record books last spring; 20-year-old Ryan Held of Springfield, Nebraska, who swims for North Carolina State and logged a personal best time of 48.26 seconds; and the 35-year-old Ervin, the irreverent, cerebral U.S. national team captain.Ervin, who shared the 50-meter freestyle gold medal with Gary Hall Jr. at the Sydney 2000 Games in an improbable tie, balanced elation with clear-eyed expectations Thursday.Once dominant in the 4x100 event, the U.S. team has won only one Olympic gold in its past four attempts (2008) and stunningly did not qualify for the finals at the 2015 world championships in Russia.Im not gonna celebrate too much right now, because the rest of the world is badass and we want to be bad too, said Ervin, who made a comeback in 2011 after almost 10 years away from competitive swimming. His recently-released memoir, Chasing Water, chronicles a self-destructive period in his life on dry land that included a suicide attempt.Part of this process being around these younger people makes me feel young, he told reporters. And I may be older than them, but Im younger than most of you.Dressel, his blonde hair sticking out in random spikes after the race, wrapped Ervin in an embrace that melded some of the teams most prominent tattoos.Not super-stoked about the time, but Im happy, said Dressel, who touched .51 behind Adrian for second place and will swim the individual 100 event in Rio. Its something nobody can ever take away. Im an Olympian now, and will forever be the rest of my life.Adrian, who trained alongside Ervin for four years in college at California, agreed that the world is faster, but he has confidence in the eclectic U.S. group. I think people are going to underestimate what the Americans are capable of, he said. I dont think thats [Thursdays times] the best we have to offer. I think the next month well be sharpening our tools, and I think that we have the arsenal to be competitive there. Denis Malgin Jersey .
