Phelps and Rice's choppy start
Michael Phelps barely qualified in the 400-metre individual medley on the opening day of Olympic swimming as he squeaked into the final by a seven-hundredths of a second. In the final, Phelps finished fourth as his countryman and rival Ryan Lochte won the gold medal. Stephanie Rice not only failed to defend her 400 metre women’s individual medley title but also lost her world record to 16-year-old Chinese sensation Ye Shiwen.
