LONDON (AP) — Chad le Clos has grown friendly with Michael Phelps over the past year and gleaned some pointers from the American standout.
He was hoping the advice would help him win an Olympic medal.
Not gold, though.
Yet that's what Le Clos had around his neck after a stunning come-from-behind victory over Phelps in the 200-meter butterfly.
Phelps has been so dominant in the 200 fly over the past decade that Le Clos wasn't even contemplating contending for victory in Tuesday's race.
Phelps probably wasn't expecting it either. Otherwise, why would he have offered Le Close free advice last year?
