JIt was swimming's race of the century: 19-year-old emerging star Phelps up against the great Ian Thorpe and compatriot Grant Hackett and defending Olympic champion Pieter van den Hoogenband in the 200m freestyle in Athens. Such flip turns could become more frequent in the years ahead.

"I'm not even looking", Bowman said.

The men will hand out individual medals in vault and still rings.

The 20-year-old shared the gold medal in the women's one hundred metre freestyle with Canadian teen Penny Oleksiak.

As Phelps told The Associated Press over the weekend: "I wouldn't change anything". "This is the best place I've ever been in my life".

Now, he will transition from a life spent in the pool to the world alongside it.

There was the embarrassing video of Phelps supposedly puffing on a marijuana bong in 2009.

No one knows how long people will be talking about Phelps' Olympic career. The red, white and blue has scored more than any team in the field and has been stifling on defense, allowing the fewest number of goals during pool play.

All eyes may have been on Team USA swimmer Michael Phelps last night, but East Bay residents celebrated athletes closer to home as UC Berkeley alum Nathan Adrian added not one, not two but four gold medals to his collection, while current Cal Bear Ryan Murphy shined in his Olympic debut.

"Coming into my first Olympics I didn't think I was going to be getting a gold medal individually". "When you're exhausted, it's just sort of easy to fall apart and not care and kind of just give up".

"After the relay last night, that's why I was hunched over and more emotional than I was in London, because it actually meant something".

Denmark's Blume won that race in 24.07 seconds, winning by 0.02 seconds from Manuel, with Aliaksandra Herasimenia a further two-hundredths of a second behind in third. Underwent counseling and quit drinking.

US declares health emergency in Puerto Rico due to Zika
In announcing the declaration, the federal agency pointed to the dangers that the mosquito-borne virus poses to pregnant women . Two people have died from complications of the virus and 90 were hospitalized, according to Puerto Rico's department of health.

"I knew that was it", Phelps said. "But you're going to be seeing a lot of other wonderful people". This time around, he reached out to his fellow swimmers, especially younger Americans, and engaged with them in the Athletes' Village.

It was apparently so special his teammates elected him their captain for the first time of his five Olympics. It was apparently so obvious that he was chosen to carry the flag in the opening ceremony, as much a salute to his newfound maturity as his lifelong talent.

Phelps' long-time coach Bob Bowman said swimming was unlikely to see anyone of his sort again.

"It's great for us to be in a new area and start a fresh family, a new family", he said. Historically, the US men have won gold in this event every time they've entered, dating back to the event's debut in 1960.

"Last time was his last, this time was his last, and I get to say I was on the same team twice when he retired", Ledecky said teasingly Saturday afternoon, shortly before Phelps made his final relay swim in the Rio Games. "I've lived a dream come true".

The night, though, belonged to Phelps, who walked out of the arena for the final time carrying an American flag handed to him by his mother from her front-row seat, right next to Johnson and little Boomer.
