With Gold in Sight Rio54
Michael Phelps took the pool tonight having already added to his career Olympic Gold tally. This 200 Meter Butterfly was important to him, he had lost by 1/100th of a second to Chad Le Clos (South Africa). Tonight you can see Le Clos to the left of this painting looking over at the fleeing Phelps. Phelps went on to take yet another Gold Medal, his twenty first. Le Clos fell off the pace so much so that he missed the podium all together. Le Clos had been talking trash, something Phelps didn't join in on. Instead he let his swimming do the talking.
