  • Phelps barely holds off the best swimmer you've never heard of - 07/01/08 - They wore matching high-tech Speedo LZR suits and swam in a temporary pool designed for speed. But even as Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte pushed each other through a dramatic record chase at the U.S. Olympic Swimming Trials on Sunday night, what brought the crowd of 12,000 to its feet was not merely the clock but also the sight of the greatest swimmer in the world struggling -- in one of his best events, the 400-meter individual medley -- to fight off an unexpectedly formidable rival. Article by Kelli Anderson
  • Ryan Lochte has participated in two Olympic Games: 2008 and 2004. In the 2004 Olympics, Ryan Lochte swam in the 200 meter individual medley and got the silver medal. Lochte got gold in the 4x200 freestyle relay.
