Today we are going to ask you an impossible question, and we hope that you can dig deep into your soul and answer it: Who is your favorite male swimmer to watch during the 2012 Olympics? We know, we know. It's just so hard to choose just one, which is why we narrowed it down to three topping our must-see list. The contenders include: (1) 23-year-old Nathan Adrian, who beat favorite James Magnussen of Australia by .01 second to win the gold medal in the 100-meter freestyle; (2) Ryan Lochte, the packed-with-personality all-star who wears American-flag diamond grills on the gold medal podium; or (3) Michael Phelps, only the most decorated Olympian of all time. Does it come down to their talent? Their likability? Their six/eight/ten-pack abs? You tell us by voting in the poll below!
