WE'RE SO HAPPY, NOW, TO WELCOME JASON LEZAK, PART OF THE 400 RELAY TEAM THAT TOOK SILVER. JASON, CONGRATULATIONS ON THE SUCCESSES IN THESE OLYMPIC GAMES. I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT YOUR TEAMMATE, MICHAEL PHELPS, A MAN YOU'VE KNOWN FOR QUITE SOME TIME. WHAT WAS IT LIKE TO SEE HIM GET 19? I'VE BEEN ON A LOT OF RELAYS WITH HIM. WE SHARE A LOT OF MEDALS. IT WAS A GREAT FEAT. OBVIOUSLY GOING TO STICK AROUND FOR A LONG TIME. YOU'VE BEEN SHOULDER T SHOULDER. THAT SPOTLIGHT SHINES SQUARELY ON ALL OF YOU. AFTER YEARS OF TRAINING FOR A FEW MOMENTS, WHAT'S THAT PRESSURE LIKE? THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF PRESSURE. AND I LIKE TO COMPETE IN FRONT OF A HUGE CROWD. FOR ME, I'VE ALWAYS ENJOYED IT. SOME PEOPLE DO GET NERVOUS. WE HAVE A LOT OF TRADITION WITH FAST SWIMMING IN AMERICAN HISTORY. THE REST OF THE WORLD GETTING FAST AND CATCHING UP. IT'S MAKING IT DIFFICULT ON US. BUT THAT'S PUSHING US TO BE EVEN BETTER. MICHAEL PHELPS AND RYAN LOCHTE WILL GO HEAD-TO-HEAD IN THE MATCH HERE. THOSE GUYS HAVE GONE HEAD-TO-HEAD. LAST SUMMER WAS AN AMAZING RACE WHEN RYAN BROKE THE WORLD SERIES. MICHAEL WAS JUST A TOUCH BEHIND HIM. THERE WAS A FLIP-FLOP. TONIGHT'S THE SEMIFINAL. BUT TOMORROW WILL BE AN AMAZING FINAL. SOME ARE WONDERING IF MICHAEL FELL INDIANAPOLIS WILL BE SWIMMING FOUR YEARS FROM NOW. YOU ALLOWED MICHAEL TO SET THE RECORD FOR GOLDS. YOU'RE 36. IS THERE ANOTHER OLYMPICS IN YOU? I CAN'T CHENT RIGHT NOW. I'M GOING TO MOVE FORWARD FROM HERE AND TAKE SOME TIME TO FIGURE THINGS OUT. I THINK I MIGHT SHOW SOME OF THE YOUNGER GUYS IT'S POSSIBLE TO KEEP SWIMMING. HOPEFULLY, I KNOW MICHAEL'S TALKED ABOUT RETIRING. BUT HOPEFULLY -- MY SHOW, 32. I COULD HAVE THE BEST SHOW OF MY LIFE. HE'S FORMER OLYMPIAN, JASON. CONTINUED SUCCESS. THANKS FOR HAVING ME ON. IT'S FINALLY TIME TO MEET
