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 medley.
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.
