Legend Phelps wins his 20th Olympic medal and 1st individual title of London Games
Michael Phelps proved his greatness by winning a 20th Olympic medal with gold in the 200m individual medley last night. Phelps beat his great rival Ryan Lochte in an exciting final.
Earlier Lochte could only take bronze in the 200m backstroke, behind the winner Tyler Clary.
American Rebecca Soni claimed gold in the women’s 200m breaststroke after smashing her own world record in the final.
Soni was a massive odds-on favourite to win the title after setting a world record of two minutes 20.00 seconds in the semi-finals, and fully justified her status with a commanding performance.
The 25-year-old took control of the race after the opening length and touched in a time of 2:19.59secs, slicing more than four tenths of a second off her previous time. Japan’s Satomi Suzuki claimed silver with Russian Iuliia Efimova taking bronze. (Mail Online)
