Michael Phelps swims years best in 100 meter butterfly

Michael Phelps recorded the best time for the year in the 100 meter butterfly at the Mutual of Omaha Swimvitational.

“I really wanted to break 51 in the 100 fly, but my finish kind of wasn’t too good,” Phelps said. “I kind of kissed the wall. It’s really not how you’re supposed to finish. Hopefully it’s something I can work on in the next two weeks.”

Phelps finished just 0.64 seconds off the world record.
