Phelps Goes 2 For 2 In Return 2009: Charlotte Nc

Phelps goes 2 for 2 in return

– Michael Phelps picked up right where he left off in Beijing. Two races. Two wins. The world’s greatest swimmer left everyone – and everything – in his wake last night at his first meet since a triumphant Olympics. That nine-month layoff No problem. That photo of him using a marijuana pipe Time to let that one go, too. None of it seemed to matter when Phelps dove in for two events less than an hour apart at the Charlotte UltraSwim. He started with a victory in the 200-meter freestyle in 1:46. In the 100 butterfly, Phelps swam the outward lap in 24.6 and made the return in 27.1 for a total time of 51.72. Coach Bob Bowman, usually Phelps’ harshest critic, was downright giddy when he saw the times. He figured Phelps would be doing well to swim the 200 free in around 1:48. In the fly, Bowman calculated that both laps were exactly 0.6 seconds faster than what he did to win the gold medal in Beijing. SAN ANTONIO – Paul Goydos followed his opening 7-under 63 with a 65 to reach 12-under 128 in the Texas Open yesterday on the La Cantera Golf Club course – three strokes ahead of three-time champion Justin Leonard and four others. It’s the biggest lead Goydos, 44, has had on the PGA Tour. Leonard, tied with Goydos after the first round, shot a 68 to join Scott Sterling (63), John Mallinger (64), Mathias Gronberg (65) and Ted Purdy (67) at 9 under. CLIFTON, N.J. – Brittany Lincicome shot a 3-under 69 and took a two-shot lead over Suzann Pettersen and Ji Young Oh after two rounds of the LPGA Sybase Classic.
