Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian in history, so it was only fitting that the U.S. swimmer finished his final race in the course of three Olympic Games with a gold-medal performance. Phelps, 27, swam the butterfly leg of the men’s 4×100-meter relay, closing the gap between the United States and leader Japan. Nathan Adrian brought the victory home in the anchor leg of the race. Japan took the silver medal in the relay, while Australia claimed the bronze. Phelps, who made his Olympic debut in Sydney in 2004, exited the pool in London one final time, sharing a group hug with his teammates.
