Michael Phelps almost outdid himself in the men’s 200-meter IM at the 2015 USA Swimming Long Course Nationals. After three lengths of the men’s 200-meter IM under World Record pace, Phelps clocked the fastest time in the globe with a 1:54.75. Although his time was just short of Ryan Lochte‘s 1:54.00 World Record, it was unquestionably fast enough to be the top time in the world this year.

Three days ago at the FINA World Championships in Kazan, Lochte swam a 1:55.81 to claim the world’s fastest time. It was short lived. Phelps busted out the first 50 meters in a lightning quick 24.65. From there, the crowd in San Antonio cheered Phelps on to a momentous and dominant win

Phelps: 24.65/28.49/33.34/28.27

This became Phelps’s third swim of the weekend to register first in the world, a truly remarkable accomplishment on his comeback trail.

Will Licon took second in 1:58.43, an impressive time for the Nitro swimmer. Travis Mahoneyclimbed to third in 1:59.41 to earn the bronze medal. Austin Surhoff wound up fourth with a 1:59.44. Eduardo Solaeche-Gomez earned fifth with a 1:59.81.

400 IM national champion Gunnar Bentz posted a 2:00.16 to get sixth, while Max Litchfield (2:00.93) and Ryan Harty (2:02.99) claimed the final two spots.

    His real parents were fish. I am sure of it. Check his DNA it’s not human.

    A classic example of a true athlete. Never trash talking about others and keep it simple. Let the actions speak for themselves.
