· Michael Phelps has his busiest night of the Games.

Less than an hour later, Phelps will be back in the pool for the 4x200m freestyle relay.

In the women’s 200m freestyle, 17-year-old phenom Missy Franklin and Allison Schmitt, who took the year off from the University Georgia to train alongside Phelps under coach Bob Bowman, will challenge Italy’s Federica Pellegrini, who has dominated the event by winning two world titles and setting a world record since she won gold in Beijing.

    The coverage is not great! In an agae where the internet is reporting things up to the minute the network selected to cover the worlds biggest games HAS to air LIVE. It sucks getting information a day AFTER the fact. EVERYONE wants to see EVERYTHING Michael Phelps does and its impossible to find it in your coverage and awful to know the results 10-20 hours before you finally do find him swimming a race that has already happened. C’mon.
