U.S. Olympic hopefuls are marching around the Beverly Hills Hilton this week, from interviews to social media booths to photo stages for media to gather information for Rio Games coverage.

USA Today had a little fun with Olympic 100m freestyle champion Nathan Adrian, and USA Swimming was there for it.

For a portrait, Adrian donned a Speedo and was doused with water from both sides. The slow-motion video captured the moment in a unique way.

“That felt right,” Adrian said.

Adrian ought to feel good. He had arguably the best performance at least weekend’s meet in Orlando.
