Proportionally and in general, swimmers are much smaller than sprinters.
Off the top of my head, some sprinters that look "big" to me are yohan blake, and justin gatlin.

According to wikipedia though yohan blake is 5'11 and 168lbs. Gatlin 6'1, 180.

I don't know if it's their visibly large arms or low body fat, but those guys look a lot bigger than their stats. Type of training definitely plays a part.

Oh and minus bolt, sprinters are typically a good deal shorter than olympic swimmers. Also we should group sprinters with sprinters. Phelps is more of a mid range guy in general.

Just from watching the olympics on TV, I thought many of the swimmers had broad shoulders and big chests. Doesn't apply to everyone, but a lot of them looked "big" imo.
