That's torn it! Phelps wins in borrowed cap

Don't mess! Michael Phelps didn't just scream and holler after beating his rival Chad le Clos at the 2016 Rio Olympics on Tuesday, August 9. These sources, he said "provide more of an outline than anything", and that's the reason why Phelps' tying of the record is best taken "with a dollop of olive oil".

Redemption was on Phelps' mind when he arrived in Rio.

Phelps cruised to the wall in the final freestyle leg on Wednesday's semifinal, clocking in at 1 minute, 55.78 seconds as he preserved his strength for the final 200 IM of his career.

But there was no doubt the night belonged to the 31-year-old Phelps and not only because he became the oldest man to win an individual swimming title at the Games.

Le Clos finished in fourth place.

When asked about the finals, Phelps expressed his excitement.

"Anytime I can be on a relay - whether it's morning, night, in practice, whatever it is - it means the absolute world to me", said Franklin, who didn't even qualify for the final of the 200 freestyle and has only one individual event left after the relay.

In an interview with Sports Illustrated, Phelps' teammate Conor Dwyer described what it was like to swim alongside Ledecky: "She'd just start beating me every single 100, and slowly but surely you get broken - and your morale goes down quickly when you get broken by a female in practice".

The Post describes the hoplite race like this: "The hoplitodromos - also called the hoplite race - might be the most intriguing".

Add another gold medal to Katie Ledecky's ever-growing pile. The image has already been Retweeted more than 17,000 times.

Former world champion Efimova has twice served suspensions for doping but got around an International Olympic Committee ruling that would have kept her out of the Games via an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

"That hurt pretty badly", she told reporters after the race. Asked what he said to 19-year-old Townley Haas after climbing out of the pool during the relay, Haas replied: "I think he said, 'I'm too old for this!'" Whenever Ryan and Michael swim, everyone gets a little edgy in the production truck. "It was a frustrating race for me and it's good for the sport to be able to have a competitor like that". "I took it pretty fast and forced everyone and once I was ahead I was not going to let it out of my hands". If she wins gold, Ledecky will join Debbie Meyer (1968) as just the second female in Olympics history to win three individual freestyle gold medals in the same Games.
