LONDON OLYMPICS – Day 2 Phelps Misses Medal #17, Lochte strikes Gold

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

First night of Swimming Finals at the Pool was without drama as Phelps in a position he is not used to got knocked off the podium in the 400m IM and finished in 4th! Ryan Lochte struck gold in the Men’s 400-meter Individual Medley and utterly defeated Michael Phelps, who did not look like himself. Lochte finished with a time of 4:05.18, which is the second fastest only to Phelps’ world and Olympic record 4:03.84 from Beijing. Excellent performance from Ryan Lochte, and I’m sure Phelps will find his 17th soon, maybe on sunday in the Medley Relay…Great to see the Getty crew of Al Bello, Adam Pretty, and Clive Rose and the rest of the familiar faces I see on the pool deck every four years. I love shooting swimming and it feels great to be at the pool again. Here are some of the photos from today, hope you enjoy and as always your feedback and comments are appreciated!!!
