Congratulations Michael! The Olympic swimmer won his record-setting 20th Olympic medal!

Michael Phelps, 27, continues to set new records (and break his old ones) by winning a gold medal in the 200-meter!

Michael went up against teammate Ryan Lochte again, but this time Michael took the gold! Michael came in at 1 minute, 54.27 seconds. Ryan narrowly missed winning the gold by 0.63 seconds.

Michael already broke a record when he won his 19th medal making him the most decorated Olympian in history. Now, Michael continues to hold that title earning 20 medals total.

The swimmer has two more opportunities to win more medals at the London Olympics.
