OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Michael Phelps won another duel with Ryan
Lochte at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials, edging his rival in
their most stirring race yet to take the 200-meter individual
Phelps had a significant advantage for Saturday night's race,
coming in fresh while Lochte had to recover quickly after winning
the 200 backstroke a half-hour earlier.
If Lochte was tired, he sure didn't look it, going stroke for
stroke with the 14-time Olympic gold medalist. But Phelps led at
every turn and got to the wall in 1 minute, 54.84 seconds, the
fastest time in the world this year.
Lochte was right behind in 1:54.93. The two slapped hands and
headed off to London for the races that really matter.
