Phelps qualifies for Games ... again

SWIMMING: American superstar Michael Phelps will be looking to add to his record number of medals (22, including 18 gold) after qualifying for a record fifth Olympic Games.

He will also become the only American to swim the same event five times after the 30-year-old won the 200m butterfly at the US Olympic trials in Omaha in a time that will give him favouritism going into Rio.

Phelps will also contest the 100m butterfly and 200m individual medley at the trials – events he has won at the past two Games.
