Lenny wins a gold medal!
With plans to retire by the end of the year, Lenny has ended his Olympic career with a gold medal.
His participation in the 4x100m medley relay heats on Friday as lead swimmer for Team USA meant that he would receive any medals that the finalists would earn. With the 2nd fastest reaction time off the blocks behind Japanese 100m bronze medalist Tomomi Morita (the guy who edged Lenny out of standing on the dais), Lenny was in front the whole of his swim handing breaststroker Mark Gangloff the lead. Followed by Michael Phelps and Neil Walker, USA qualified 1st fastest for the finals, and favourites following Australia's failure to qualify (9th). "All of us had pretty good splits," Krayzelburg said.
Results of the Heat 2 4x100m medlay relay:
As expected, Lenny was replaced by 100m & 200m backstroke gold mealist, Aaron Peirsol for the finals. In Peirsol's swim, he also broke Lenny's 100m backstroke world record. Lenny's set the 53.66 mark in 1999 at the Pan Pacific Championships in Sydeny. The new WR now stands at 53.45. Consequently, TEAM USA consisting of Aaron Piersol, Brendan Hansen, Ian Crocker and Jason Lezak won the race in World Record time.
Interestingly, Lenny's time of 54.27 in the 4x100m medley heats would have earnt him a silver medal for the final of the 100m backstroke, as actual silver medalist Markus Rogan went 54.35.
After winning 3 gold medals in Sydney 2000, Lenny co-copatain of th USA Swim team (with Tom Malchow, Lindsay Benko and Jenny Thompson) is now the owner of 4 Olympic gold medals. Congratulations Lenny!

Lenny on his 100m backstroke finals performance:
"It was definitely disappointing," said Krayzelburg, who battled back from surgery on both shoulders to make the Olympic team. "I thought I could do better. I've been feeling so good. The times weren't really fast, for whatever reason. A 54.06 won it. I definitely thought I could have been there. Sometimes, you have good days. Sometimes, you have bad days. Today was a bad day."

Night 3 was an evening of anxiety and dissapointment for Lenny and his fans in the 100m backstroke finals. Whilst Lenny qualified 4th fastest in a time of 54.63 in his semi final, he was unable to secure a medal in the finals missing out by only two one hundredths of a second.
Lenny's medal hopes now lie in a heat swim in 4x100m medley relay. If Lenny swims in the heats (and presumably Aaron will swim the finals), and if USA secures a medal, Lenny will also receive a medal for his contribution in the heats- so good luck!

Lenny will not swim at the World Championships to be held in Barcelona this month (July 12-27)
The following is a statement by Lenny regarding his decision (originally located at USA Swimming site)
"Given the recommended rehabilitation program following my successful shoulder surgery on June 4th, I have decided to forego World Championships this summer in Barcelona. While I am very pleased with my progress and performance over the past year, my doctor, coaches, and I concluded that undergoing surgery now, rather than waiting until after Worlds, would enable me to prepare for the 2004 Olympics in top physical condition. I am disappointed to miss Worlds, but given the success of my recent surgery, I am confident that I will return to top form and achieve my number-one goal of representing my country at the Athens Olympics and bringing home Gold."
