‘Golden boy’ Phelps pips Lochte in final duel at Olympic trialsWashington: American star swimmer Michael Phelps has defeated rival Ryan Lochte to win the 200-meter individual medley at the U.S. Olympic swimming trials.

Edging his rival in their most stirring race yet, Phelps got a significant advantage coming in fresh for Saturday night’s race, while Lochte had to recover quickly after winning the 200 backstroke half an hour earlier.

According to CBS News, it didn’t look like Lochte was tired, as he went stroke for stroke with the 14-time Olympic gold medalist. However, Phelps led at every turn and got to the wall in 1 minute, 54.84 seconds, the fastest time in the world this year, while Lochte followed in 1:54.93.

Lochte had previously defeated Phelps in the 400 individual medley on the opening night of the meet and scored another win over the 14-time Olympic gold medalist in the semi-finals of the 200-meter freestyle.
