Miami: Michael Phelps settled for third place behind Olympic gold medallist Nathan Adrian's blazing 48.05sec in the 100m freestyle on Saturday to close out the Orlando Pro Swim.
While Adrian dominated the field -- winning by a body length and posting the second-fastest time in the world this year behind the 47.57 posted by Australian Cameron McEvoy -- Phelps was left mulling what he considered a somewhat disappointing meeting.
"I'm always so hard on myself," said Phelps, who was disappointed not to break 52 seconds in winning the 100m butterfly on Thursday.
He added a fourth-place finish in the 100m backstroke on Friday, before finishing behind Adrian and Italian Luca Dotto (49.33) in the 100m free in 49.57.
While the individual 100m free hasn't figured in Phelps's remarkable tally of 18 Olympic gold medals, he's surely targetting a 4x100m free relay berth at the Rio Games in August.
But the superstar, who owns a record 22 Olympic medals total, said that he has work to do before the US Olympic trials in late June and the Games themselves.

In addition to spending time in the pool with Michael Phelps, this package also includes a photo with the swimming superstar and a hand-signed piece of memorabilia. Date to be determined, but will be held in the New York area the summer of 2009. Only 100 spots are available for this clinic. Duration will be an hour and a half.

I've been coaching for a long time (but in a different sport.) I have a lot of experience in the national arena, and have seen a lot of great athletes.

Is Michael Phelps one of the best, or overhyped?

Granted, TV coverage in the US tends to promote then tear down, and that is (sadly) a part of our culture. But when you look at how many people have accomplished what Phelps has done (answer = one), there really IS only one conclusion.

You may or not like him.

You may or may not like the hype.

You may think he looks goofy, or is too nice.

His size 14 feet may turn you off.

But he is the most accomplished Olympian of all time ... so far. I think his legacy will rest on another Olympics, 2012. More great performances there will help him seal the deal.

Best ATHLETE ever? Not yet ...

Best Olympian ... maybe .... 2012 will tell. I think three Olympics is plenty of longevity to make that judgment.
