With 25 Medals, Phelps Only One Podium Away From India's Tally

With 25 Medals, Phelps Only One Podium Away From India's Tally

The race turned out to be incredibly exciting and after it, Phelps did a Dikembe Mutombo impression, wagging his finger at his opponents. "These guys, and all the Olympians, train four years for one meet".

He quit after the 2012 London Games but came out of retirement to participate in Rio.

The heartwarming father-son moment was captured by a slew of press photographers, something Phelps said he was thankful for in the whirlwind of Olympic competition.

While his younger teammates celebrated their almost three-second victory around him, Phelps sat down, a satisfied, if a bit winded, 31-year-old Olympic legend.

"When I was 10, I always watched him", said Hungarian Tamas Kenderesi, 19, who won bronze behind Phelps in the 200 butterfly. Ledecky began her leg of the race just under a second behind Australia before she destroyed the field and won by almost two seconds.

Where does that leave Lochte?

Michael Phelps won his 21st Olympic gold medal Tuesday night, his 12th individual Olympic title. I was just glad to get my hand on the wall first.

How many more records and firsts can this man bring us?

Reds trade rumors: Reds 'found a match' for Jay Bruce
Beltran is a nine-time MLB All-Star and was a member of the 2016 American League squad that won in Petco Park earlier this month. This has led the Mets to focus more on Plan B, which involves Cincinnati Reds' outfielder Jay Bruce .


If Phelps were a country, he would rank 39th in the all-time Olympic gold medal standings; he's won 25 medals overall as the most decorated male Olympic swimmer. Bad timing. Yet he can take credit for pushing Phelps, who absolutely hates to lose.

"It hurt a little bit, but with a good rest this afternoon think I'll be fine", he said.

They are also roommates. The Americans are the top two all-time performers in the event.

Don't mess! Michael Phelps didn't just scream and holler after beating his rival Chad le Clos at the 2016 Rio Olympics on Tuesday, August 9. "We'll have one more time to hop in the pool and duke it out". The 200 IM is Lochte's only individual event of the Olympics and he has been concentrating on the event for weeks.

To start off the session, Simone Manuel got out to an early lead in her 100m freestyle heat to clock 53.32.

That means, just like they lined up on Wednesday night, Phelps will be in Lane 4, Lochte in Lane 5.

In a furious down-and-back sprint, Chalmers rallied on the return lap to win with a time of 47.58 seconds. The image has already been Retweeted more than 17,000 times.

"It's going to take a ideal performance to beat him", Lochte said.
