Phelps & Company Clean Up in 4X200M Freestyle Relay
Another race, another gold medal for Michael Phelps.
Just minutes after taking back the gold in the 200M butterfly, Phelps was back in the pool with his 4X200M relay teammates, Ryan Lochte, Townley Haas and Conor Dwyer and eventually back on top.
After a solid start by Dwyer, which gave the USA a lead it never surrendered, Haas had the swim of his life putting a large gap between himself and the rest of the pack. Lochte kept the lead in tact on the third leg and Phelps coasted to the almost 3-second victory with relative ease.
The win not only marked Phelps' 20th gold but also his 25th overall medal. Lochte also secured his 12 overall medal of his solid Olympic career.
