Phelps reveals Games events
SWIMMING:Michael Phelps plans to swim the same eight events he contested at the last two Olympics. In addition to his 14 golds, which is more than any other Olympian, Phelps has two bronze medals. He needs just three more medals of any color in London to surpass the overall record of 18 held by Soviet gymnast Larisa Latynina. Latynina also holds the record for the most individual medals at the Games with 14, four more than Phelps.
The American hopes to swim in five individual events in London. At the halfway stage of the US Olympic trials, Phelps has booked his place in three of his five individual events; the 400 metres medley, 200m freestyle and 200m butterfly. He has the 200m medley and 100m butterfly to go and will be automatic choice for the three relays.
