MESA, Ariz. - There was a time, before the 2012 Olympics, when swimming became a grim exercise for its greatest practitioner, Michael Phelps.  The pool felt like a place of obligation, not joy, and thus Phelps walked away from the sport after bringing his record gold-medal total to 18 in London. That dread was nowhere in evidence Thursday when Phelps made his triumphant return to competitive swimming after a 20-month retirement. Phelps beamed on the starting block before his first race, acknowledging the effusive roar he'd received from a sellout crowd at the Mesa Grand Prix.  Then, he showed he could still swim a little bit. In a performance that wiped away any doubts about his form, Phelps posted the day's fastest qualifying time in the 100-meter butterfly at 52.84 seconds.

Without the gold medals, he's just like Bachelor Brad without the southern accent.

After months of hints and half-denials, Michael Phelps has re-entered the drug testing pool for international competition, the strongest signal yet that he's planning a return to swimming. Phelps, already widely regarded as the greatest competitive swimmer in history, has not announced that he's ending his retirement or that he plans to swim at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro. And his longtime coach Bob Bowman said Thursday that “there are no definite plans to return to competition at this time.” But United States Anti-Doping Agency records posted Thursday indicate that Phelps would be eligible to compete again in 2014.

Surging to one of his trademark late-breaking finishes, Michael Phelps won his final event - the 100-meter butterfly - at the Olympic qualifying trials Sunday night, and heads to London likely to swim the same eight races that produced his record-breaking gold-medal haul. "It shows I can do an event program like this at a high level again," said Phelps, who qualified for five events in London and is expected to be named to three relay teams as he was in Beijing. "I think we were struggling over the last couple of years doing one event at this level.

Michael Phelps , who turns 27 on Saturday, said his mother and sisters always say how hard it is to find a birthday present for him. And indeed, what he wants to open they can't exactly wrap. Phelps will spend his birthday battling Ryan Lochte for the 200-meter individual medley win at the Olympic qualifying trials after finishing second to his rival in Friday night's semifinals. Saturday is "my birthday so hopefully I get a birthday present," Phelps said Friday night. He'll at least get to spend it among teammates from the North Baltimore Aquatic Club: Chase Kalisz, 18, of Fallston, and Austin Surhoff , 21, of Cockeysville, made it into the finals with him. Phelps said he didn't get off to a very good start, and once he noticed that he and Lochte were ahead of the field, he decided to conserve some energy.

With Michael Phelps' script calling for him to exit pool left after these Games, every day brings another last - of a particular race, for example, or a final matchup against a worthy rival. But even after four Olympics, Phelps is finding firsts. Thursday night, he became the first male swimmer to win the same event in three consecutive Olympics - the 200-meter individual medley. It may be a rather nuanced title, full of qualifications, compared to those he already has after his name, such as the most-decorated Olympian moniker earned Tuesday night.

BEIJING - Listen to Ryan Lochte talk and your mind conjures images of Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times at Ridgemont High or Wooderson from Dazed and Confused. While most athletes rely on a carefully scripted series of businesslike cliches, he is as mellow as the Florida surf at low tide. It's easy to overlook, when you listen to his version of skateboarder Zen, that he might be the second-best swimmer in the world. But it's true. If there was no Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte just might be Michael Phelps, the swimmer favored to win more gold medals than you can count on one hand at these Olympics.

Michael Phelps enters Monday night's finals in the 400-meter individual medley seeded second to rival Ryan Lochte after the morning preliminary heats. Phelps' teammate at North Baltimore Aquatic Club, Chase Kalisz, 18, swam to a surprise third-best time in the preliminaries that opened the Olympic qualifying trials here. "It was all right. It felt fairly relaxed ... The breaststroke was there," Phelps told reporters, referring to the third of the strokes in the medley. "Then I saw Chase and I knew I couldn't let him be anywhere close.

Who was that swimmer in the far lane, finishing fourth and failing to medal? A sluggish-looking Michael Phelps launched his final Olympics Saturday night in uncharacteristic fashion, leaving the pool without a stop at the medal platform after a fourth-place finish in the 400-meter individual medley. It's the first time he has exited a Summer Games event empty-handed since his first Olympics in 2000. Instead, his rival Ryan Lochte was the one who swam dominantly, taking the lead in the first 100 meters to win the first gold medal awarded in the eight-day swimming competition.

Michael Phelps was driving over the Allegheny Mountains after playing golf with Hockey Hall of Famer Mario Lemieux on Friday, bound for Baltimore. Friends from across the country were streaming into his hometown to celebrate his 28th birthday, which is Sunday. He had plans to stay in town for a week, do some work around his Canton home and relax after too much time traveling. Swimming - at least competitively - was far from his mind. He knew reports speculating that he might be regretting retirement continued circulating.

Lest anyone had any doubt what a year Michael Phelps has had, behold this: GQ's Russian version just named him International Man of the Year. Phelps made the cover of Russian GQ's current issue, looking, well, rather sexy in low slung sweats, and a leather jacket over an unzipped hoodie. One pretty much notices the abs first. Ryan Lochte is no doubt seething. And girlfriend Megan Rossee must be proud, proud, proud. Wish we knew, however, what the headline says about Phelps.

For now, Michael Phelps is doing what any 27-year-old who has won more medals than any Olympian ever - and earned millions along the way - would probably do. Vacation a little bit. (You've probably seen pictures of him in Las Vegas and the Maldives .) Golf. (Of course, his golf game is the subject of a reality television show.) Date a model. ( You've read all about Megan Rossee by now.) And, because he's from Baltimore, eat crabs. “Pretty much I'm just living the retirement life,” Phelps said Monday after a ceremony/pep rally at Under Armour headquarters.

In Beijing, Michael Phelps won eight Olympic gold medals, and six in Athens before that. Last Saturday, Ryan Lochte beat Mr. Phelps convincingly in the 400-meter individual medley. Last Sunday, Mr. Phelps built a solid lead for Mr. Lochte in the 400-meter relay, and Mr. Lochte lost it and the race. And last Monday, a very fast French swimmer and two others relegated Mr. Lochte to fourth place in the 200-meter free style. Naturally, we wish him the very best, but it is now even clearer to everyone, including no doubt Mr. Lochte, how awesomely impressive Michael Phelps ' accomplishments are. The hype about "Lochte's time" is now in proper perspective: He will achieve some good, maybe even great results, but there simply has never been anybody like Michael Phelps .
