U.S. swimmer Sierra Schmidt stole the show at the Olympic Swimming Trials in Nebraska on Wednesday night.  It wasn't her performance in the pool, it was her pre-race dance routine.

Someone had too much pre-race coffee.  I've come to find out way too much about Sierra since I saw this video.  Apparently it's her way of preparing for the race.

Unfortunately she may have used too much energy on her pre-race dance routine.  She finished seventh in 1,500 meter freestyle final and didn't earn an Olympic berth.

The bottom line is if you can go viral it doesn't matter how well you perform in the race.  None of us know who won the race, but we all know who was dancing badly before it.
