Michael Phelps got a rematch with 2012 Olympic winner Chad le Clos of South Africa in the Men's 200m butterfly final.

Phelps finished first with a time of 1:53.36, just 0.04 seconds ahead of silver. This is Phelps' 20th gold medal.

Now the US goes for a fourth consecutive gold in the men’s 4x200m freestyle relay. Conor Dwyer, who earned a bronze medal in the 200m freestyle, will lead the relay, followed by Henrico's own Townley Haas. Ryan Lochte will follow third and finally Michael Phelps will anchor.
