American Olympic champion Rowdy Gaines has hailed the unprecedented strength of Australia’s swimming team ahead of the Paris Olympics, believing the Dolphins are poised to top the medal table over their fierce USA rivals for the first time in 68 years.

Australia stunned the USA at last year’s world swimming championships in Japan by topping the medal table with 13 gold medals, seven silvers and five bronzes.

The USA managed just seven gold medals, which was their lowest world championship haul since the four they won in 1994. They did win a whopping 20 silver medals in Fukuoka but were consistently pipped by the likes of Ariarne Titmus, Kaylee McKeown, Cam McEvoy, Kyle Chalmers and Australia’s relay teams.

Australia has not topped an Olympic swimming medal table since the 1956 Games in Melbourne.

The Dolphins won more gold medals (nine) at the last Olympics in Tokyo than ever before.

Speaking on Channel Nine’s new documentary Boiling Point – Swimming’s Greatest Rivalry, which airs on Sunday night, Gaines has conceded Team USA will have their work cut out in Paris.
