Another day, another shot at a bit of redemption. But this time it may be for Tyler Clary, the swimmer whose public dissing of teammate Michael Phelpscaused a verbal firestorm as the two headed to the Games. Clary was widely viewed as the bad guy after telling his hometown newspaper three weeks ago that Phelps, poised to become perhaps the most decorated Olympian of all time, didn't work hard and was asking to get beaten. And Clary, little-known and headed to his first Olympics compared to Phelps' fourth, said "it would be complete satisfaction" when he did the beating.

The morning after he became the most decorated Olympian ever, after answering congratulatory tweets from President Obama and fellow Baltimorean Josh Charles among others, Michael Phelps was back in the pool Wednesday morning, swimming fast enough to qualify as the fourth seed in tonight's 200-meter individual medley. His American rival Ryan Lochte is seeded second to preliminary heats' winner Laszlo Cseh of Hungary. Lochte earlier in the morning qualified for the 200-meter backstroke semifinals tonight, placing second to teammate Tyler Clary's first.

Having swum in Michael Phelps shadow for most of his career, Tyler Clary finally made his first Olympics - and promptly dissed the guy who is headed to his fourth. Clary, 23, of Riverside, Calif., shocked the swimming world Tuesday, when a columnist for a California newspaper quoted him as saying the Baltimore swimmer with a record 14 gold medals to his name doesn't work as hard as he does. “I think the things he could have done if he'd worked as hard as I do would have been even more incredible than what he has pulled off,” Clary said to Jim Alexander of The Press-Enterprise . The remarks caused an instant ruckus online and at University of Tennessee in Knoxville, where Phelps, Clary and the rest of the recently picked U.S. Olympic swim team is training for the Games that begin in 2 1/2 weeks.

INDIANAPOLIS -- Michael Phelps on Friday won the race he loves to hate: the brutal, all-four-strokes endurance contest, the 400-meter individual medley at the Grand Prix. Setting a new record for the meet, Phelps powered past Tyler Clary, to finish at 4 minutes 12.51 seconds before an appreciative crowd at the Indiana University Natatorium. The question of the night, though, was whether they had seen the last Phelps 400 IM ever. The Baltimore swimmer has been threatening since the 2008 Olympics that he was done with the event considered the sport's toughest.

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.

In what everyone wants to be the final words on the brouhaha over Tyler Clary's takedown of Michael Phelps ' work habits, both swimmers addressed the issue on Thursday. The short version: Clary said, my bad. Phelps said, whatever. The long version, according to news reports from Knoxville, where the Olympics-bound swim team has been training at the University of Tennessee natatorium, is that the two cleared the air and that they're focused on beating up on the rest of the world at the Games in London rather than each other.

This is getting repetitive, in a Michael Phelps sort of way. Ryan Lochte won his third and fourth gold medals at the world swimming championships Friday night, obliterating the field in the final of the 200-meter backstroke before unleashing a jaw-dropping anchor leg to help bail out a U.S. 800 relay team that sat in third place after Phelps' leadoff swim. At the start of this meet, swimming fans wondered whether Lochte could hold his own against Phelps on such a major stage.

Jim Alexander's column on Tyler Clary dissing Michael Phelps had been up online for about 4 1/2 hours Monday night when the writer's phone rang. It was Clary, hoping for a do-over of sorts. But in journalism as in swimming, that doesn't happen. “He wasn't angry with me,” Alexander said Wednesday, a day after his column in The Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Cal., drew more than 10,000 page views and a veritable tower of babble in the world of swimming. But the swimmer who made headlines by calling out Phelps for allegedly not working very hard wanted to pull back his scorching remarks, Alexander said.

OMAHA, Neb. - Michael Phelps' 27th birthday began with Ryan Lochte trying to crash if not his party, then his 100-meter butterfly race . It's a long-standing part of Phelps' racing portfolio, and while Lochte had registered for it, he was expected to scratch because he already had two races Saturday night, including a big one against Phelps, the 200individual medley. Instead, he opted to challenge Phelps in another race, and the Baltimore swimmer took the biggest piece of cake of the night.

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.

That door Michael Phelps keeps slamming on ever again swimming the exhausting 400-meter individual medley race? Apparently, it's a revolving one. After the Baltimore swimmer raced to a record-setting finish in the 400 IM at the Indianapolis Grand Prix Friday night, he said that there was a chance he would add the event to his still secret line-up in the Olympics this summer. "Who knows?" an exuberant Phelps said when asked if this really, really, really was the last time he would swim the race he swore off after the 2008 Olympics, but has since returned to multiple times.

OMAHA, Neb. - It's on: Michael Phelps will seek to qualify for the London Olympics in the 400-meter individual medley Monday morning, a grueling event that he just can't seem to quit. The event will open the trials here, as well as the Games themselves in July. Phelps owns the race, or at least the national and world records for it, but he enters the trials seeded third, to his prime rival Ryan Lochte and the swimmer who said this weekend that he doubted the Baltimore swimmer would try to qualify in it, Tyler Clary.
