Don’t forget to tune in on Tuesday July 31st as Michael Phelps has a chance at breaking an Olympic record in consecutive wins at three Olympics.
Michael Phelps, a 14 time gold-medal winner, led the team into the Olympics with all eyes on him to repeat his magic all over again, according to Sporting News.
On Monday Phelps had a rough start as he crawled through the first laps of his favorite event, but in the middle of the field he turned on the power for the last two lengths of the 200 meter butterfly and came in at 1:54:25. This was the fourth fastest time in the match, according to Reuters.
The 200m Butterfly is physically demanding, but Phelps loves this event and it looks like his slow start might be just that, just a slow start as he picked up speed and is back in the game as a swimmer to be reckoned with again!
If Phelps wins the butterfly final on Tuesday he will become the first swimmer on the men’s team to win gold in the same individual event at three Olympics in a row! Will History be made?
