Sports Illustrated picked Thomas Lurz and Larisa Ilchenko to win the men's and women's Olympic 10K Marathon Swim. Every tenth of a second is going to count. It is going to be extremely close - which is the main reason why the athletes grease up their ankles - to prevent their competitors from pulling and grabbing their legs.
