Lochte,cheap nhl jerseys, the defending world champion in the event, ended Phelps’ reign as the two time defending Olympic champion and took gold in 4:05.18. Thiago Pereira of Brazil was second and Japan’s Kosuke Hagino was third.
But the shocker of the event was Phelps, who finished fourth in 4:09.28.
“It was just a crappy race,” Phelps said. “I felt fine the first 200, then I don’t know. They just swam a better race than me, a smarter race than me, and were better prepared than me. That’s why they’re on the medal stand.”
The fourth place finish marked the first time the Baltimore native finished off the podium in an Olympic event since the cheap authentic nfl jerseys nfl jerseys 2000 Sydney Games.
“It’s frustrating, that’s anthony davis jersey all I can say. It’s pretty upsetting,” Phelps said. “The biggest thing now is to try to look forward. I have a bunch of other races, and hopefully we can finish a lot better than how we started.”
