American swimmer Andrew Seliskar remarked that the atmosphere in Budapest was "incredible" and that made everyone "fired up." Seliskar noted that the team battle is really close, so they are being very strategic about where they are placing the swimmers in the specific events. "I'm just trying to do my part to help the team," Seliskar acknowledged.
