Lochte sizzles

Ryan Lochte clocked the second fastest time ever in the 200 meters individual medley at the US Nationals in Indianapolis on Friday, taking over from Michael Phelps as the American medley maestro. With Phelps choosing not to swim the medley this season, Lochte moved quickly to put his stamp on the event, winning both the 200 and 400 IMs to clinch spots at the Rome world championships later this month. Lochte, a double gold medallist in Beijing, charged out of his team mate's shadow, clocking one minute 54.56 seconds, just .33 shy of Phelps' world record 1:54.23.
