London: Michael Phelps created another record at the London Olympics 2012 by winning a gold medal in the 200-meter individual medley for the third consecutive time, the first male swimmer to do so.

He claimed his 20th career medal — and 16th gold — in 1 minute, 54.27 seconds, just off his winning time in Beijing but still good enough for gold, ahead of Lochte.

This was Phelps’ first individual gold in the London Games and handed Lochte a double disappointment on his rival`s final night in the pool Thursday.


"To be able to win the gold medal and be the first to threepeat, it means something," said Phelps, whose first gold in London was swimming the anchor on the 4x200 freestyle relay. "It`s pretty special and something that I`m very happy for."

He has now two golds and two silvers in five races at London and has two more races to go: the 100 butterfly Friday and the 4x100 medley relay Saturday.

Lochte settled for silver in 1:54.90, having split with Phelps in their two head-to-head races in London. Hungary`s Laszlo Cseh took the bronze, well behind the Americans in 1:56.22.
