Phelps, whose remarkable 18 Olympic gold medals include three 100m fly victories, was third in his heat in 51.87sec, the sixth-fastest time of the morning in an event topped by the 51.61 of Matthew Josa. Lochte also made it through in the 100m fly, but scratched the semi-finals to focus on his individual medley duel with Phelps.
