LONDON: Michael Phelps provided a reminder of his incredible feats from Beijing when he beat his old rival Milorad Cavic at the London Olympics yesterday. It was only a morning heat but the American showed why he remains the fiercest competitor in the pool when he stormed past Cavic on the last lap to book his place in the semi-finals of the men’s 100 metres butterfly, his last individual event before he retires. “This is my last prelim swim ever so that was a lot of fun to be able to do a pretty decent time in it,” said Phelps.
