BJ & Jamie: Michael Phelps wins another Gold in RIO! 8/10

August 10, 2016

Michael Phelps won his second and THIRD gold medals of the Rio Games Tuesday.  Phelps has now won 21 gold medals in his Olympic career, and 25 medals in total.

First, Phelps regained his Olympic 200-meter butterfly title by beating the man who took it away from him four years earlier.

Phelps dusted South African Chad le Clos to take the gold medal in an event he’d won in 2004 and ’08 before being upset in ’12.  

Phelps barely held off Japan’s Masato Sakai, who won silver in 1:53.40. Hungary’s Tamas Kenderesi took the bronze at 1:53.62 while le Clos finished fourth in 1:54.06.


Later,  Phelps won his 21st gold medal as part of the U.S. 4x200-meter freestyle relay team.
