A

merican swimming legend Michael Phelps finished second in the men's 200-meter butterfly race on Tuesday, finishing just .05 seconds behind South African Chad le Clos, who thrillingly surged ahead of Phelps in the final meters to take home the gold. The silver medal is Phelps' 18th medal (14 gold, two silver, two bronze), tying him with former Soviet gymnast Larissa Latynina as the most decorated Olympian in history. Phelps still has several races left in London in which he can break his tie with Latynina.
