Michael Phelps is now the most decorated Olympian ever after winning gold in the 4x200 relay Tuesday, but his silver-medal race in the 200 fly might have been the highlight of the night.
Missy Franklin, Ryan Lochte, and Matt Grevers have multiple medals, including a gold medal each. American swimmers have been scooping up medals and smashing records at the London 2012 Olympics. So far, swimming is the only sport where multiple US athletes have won multiple medals.
Ryan Lochte finished fourth in the 200-meter freestyle Monday, but it didn't diminish a fantastic night of swimming at the Olympics. In fact, it might have made them even better.
Michael Phelps is in China this week, competing at the world swimming championships. The first individual event for Michael Phelps will be the 200-meter freestyle race Tuesday night.
