Allison Schmitt, who trains out of the North Baltimore Aquatic Center, was narrowly edged in the 400 freestyle today by France's Camille Muffat. Britain's Rebecca Adlington took the bronze. Muffat's 4:01.45, an Olympic record, beat Schmitt by .32. Adlington's bronze is the first swimming medal of these Olympics for the host country. The favored Muffat went out fast and hung on as Schmitt stayed close throughout the race.

"Off the dome, man! We don't need phones. We don't need notepads," exclaims Los last week after ripping his Toca Tuesday freestyle live on Sirius XM's Shade 45. (Watch it in the above clip.) He had reason to be excited - the Baltimore rapper, who has been gaining traction nationally, could turn heads with performances like this. And yes, we can use the word "freestyle"* because Los is clearly going off the top of his head with these rhymes. Sure, some bars might be stored away, waiting for the right moment, but it's a true freestyle nonetheless, and it's another piece of evidence that Los might be the Great Baltimore Hope to make an impact outside of the 410. Another interesting moment from the clip: Los shouts out his long-time girlfriend and rising D.C. rapper Lola Monroe ("Shout out to my old lady / Ay, Lola, I see you / I do it and I hold it down")

IRVINE, Calif. -- Michael Phelps began the most important meet of his comeback Wednesday with a stroke he admitted was shaky in a race he has rarely attempted against the best competition. That set-up led to an uncustomary disappointing result, with Phelps finishing seventh in the 100-meter freestyle final at the Phillips 66 National Championships. He finished behind winner Nathan Adrian, longtime rival Ryan Lochte and North Baltimore Aquatic Club teammate Conor Dwyer. Phelps' time of 49.17 seconds in the evening final was actually worse than his 48.77 seconds from morning preliminaries.

Michael Phelps will swim the second leg of tonight's 400-meter freestyle relay, with Ryan Lochte anchoring the always exciting race in which the U.S. faces stiff competition from the Australian team. Phelps, who traditionally leads off the relay, is coming off Saturday's sluggish 400-meter individual relay, his fourth-place finish leaving him without a medal. His rival Lochte won gold with a powerful swim. Sprinters Nathan Adrian and Cullen Jones swim first and third, respectively.

LONDON - Michael Phelps, after just becoming the most decorated Olympian of all time, will anchor the U.S. men's 800-meter freestyle relay tonight. The surprise decision - Phelps tends to lead off - was announced just before the start of the 200-meter butterfly, in which he won silver. The U.S. relay team will be led off by Ryan Lochte, who on Sunday anchored the 400 frees relay and gave up the race-long lead to French swimmer Yannick Agnel, in a reverse of what happened so dramatically in the Beijing Games.

Omaha, Neb. -- Ryan Lochte again bested Michael Phelps on Tuesday night, this time in by a mere .02 seconds, in their semifinal heat in the 200-meter freestyle event of the Olympic qualifying trials. Both go on to the finals Wednesday night to see if one or both swims the event at the London Games. "I was a little sore this morning but I'm fine with that," said Phelps, who was stretching his neck from side to side as he entered for the race at the CenturyLink Center here.

The U.S. 4x200 freestyle relay team posted the fastest qualifying time this morning at the Aquatic Centre in London, giving Michael Phelps a chance to break Soviet Union gymnast Larisa Latynina's record for career Olympic medals today. That's assuming that the Baltimore swimmer medals in his signature event, the 200-meter butterfly, about an hour before the relay finals are scheduled. The butterfly final is expected to start around 2:49 p.m. local time with the relay at 3:51 p.m. A medal in the 200 fly would tie Phelps with Latynina at 18 medals.

MELBOURNE, Australia -- For a man with so much on his mind, Michael Phelps has had a relaxed air about him the first two days of the FINA World Championships. He's gushed about his English bulldog puppy, Herman. He's poked fun at his disappointing first-day performance two years ago at the world championships in Montreal. He's admitted that he was bored the first day without a morning swim. He's even shrugged off talk from the South African swim team that American swimmers were overrated.
