US Olympic Medalist Michael Phelps Lost To China’s Wu Peng

US Olympic star Michael Phelps lost to China’s Wu Peng in the final 50 meters 200m butterfly at the Charlotte UltraSwim long course meeting.

Phelps was able only to settle a record of 1:58.22, that made him only as second best as against to Wu 1:56.83.

Wu couldn’t match his season’s best of 1:56.62, but he had the satisfaction of notching another victory over Phelps, who reigned in the 200m fly for nearly a decade.

Wu’s victory at the Michigan Grand Prix last month, in a race in which Phelps finished fourth, marked the 14-time Olympic gold medalist’s first defeat in the event since 2002.
