London 2012 Olympics Preview: Michael Phelps Faces Off Against Ryan Lochte

It was a history making Day 4 of the 2012 London Olympics that saw ultimate glory for Michael Phelps as he became the most decorated Olympian of all time. Phelps has a chance to add to his record breaking 19th medal in the treasure chest, but all eyes will be on him and Ryan Lochte as they face off against each other in the men's 200-meter individual medley.

Meanwhile, on the local front, swimmer Nathan Adrian from Bremerton, Washington looks to take home the gold medal on the 100-meter freestyle, where he came away with the second quickest qualifying time. Seattle Storm icon Sue Bird and the rest of the women's national team look to continue their quest for a gold medal against Turkey, who are also 2-0 in the preliminary pool.
