Michael Phelps got back at Ryan Lochte, stretching out to win a thrilling 200-meter freestyle at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

Phelps got off to a stronger start that usual, leading at the first turn and holding the advantage through all four laps Wednesday night.

Both swimmers got a big boost off the final turn, with Lochte charging hard to chase down the winningest Olympian ever. But Phelps stretched out his right arm at the wall, touching just ahead of Lochte.

The winning time was 1 minute, 45.70 seconds-- five-hundredths of a second ahead of Lochte.

Both will head to London to resume their rivalry at the Olympics.

Phelps had a busy night, hustling to the warmdown pool to get
ready for the semifinals of the 200 butterfly.
