Michael Phelps sets world record in 100 butterfly (Video)

August 1, 2009

ROME (ChattahBox) — Michael Phelps let his performance in the pool do the talking as he beat Milorad Cavic again, with no doubt about it this time.

In Beijing, Cavic with what looked like a commanding lead, glided into the wall and lost the gold by one-hundredth of a second to Phelps. This time Phelps stayed closer over the outward lap and rallied on the return to become the first swimmer to break 50 seconds in the 100-meter butterfly, beating the Serbian with a time of 49.82.

Cavic, wearing a soon-to-be banned Arena suit deemed quicker than Phelps’ Speedo, also broke 50 seconds, but 49.95 was only good enough for silver.
