Michael Phelps wins 16th career gold

Michael Phelps wins his 16th career gold medal while handing Ryan Lochte a double disappointment on his rival’s final night in the pool. 

Thursday Phelps became the first male swimmer to win the same individual event at 3 straight olympics, capturing the 200-meterindividual medley for his 20th career medal and 16th gold.

Phelps has now won 2 golds and 2 silvers in 5 races. Not exactly up to his Beijing standards, but a fitting capper to a brilliant career that still has 2 more events to go.
