OMAHA — Michael Phelps’s Olympic program is set. He’ll be going for another eight gold medals in London.
And get ready to see a lot of Missy Franklin. She’ll be busy, too.
Phelps wrapped up another stellar week at the US trials Sunday night, rallying to win the 100-meter butterfly and secure his spot in five individual races at the Olympics.
Phelps was slow off the blocks and made the turn in sixth place. But he caught Tyler McGill on the return lap and surged to the wall to win in 51.14 seconds, well off his world-record pace (49.82) but fastest in the world this year.
McGill hung on for the second Olympic spot in 51.32. Ryan Lochte, swimming an event he normally doesn’t in major competitions, just missed adding another race to his already busy program. He was third, 33-hundreths behind McGill.
Phelps, who won an Olympic-record eight golds at the 2008 Beijing Games, is set to swim the same events in London: the 100 and 200 fly, the 200 and 400 individual medley, and the 200 freestyle, as well as all three relays.
In an ominous sign for his rivals, Phelps isn’t happy with just winning. He’s still looking for the perfect race.
‘‘That was a pretty crappy first 50 and a pretty terrible finish,’’ Phelps said. ‘‘I should have taken another stroke. It felt OK. It didn’t feel great, didn’t feel terrible.
‘‘It’s done, we’re done.’’
Well, not quite.
The races that really matter are still to come in London.
‘‘It shows that I can do the kind of event program like this at a high level again,’’ Phelps said.
Phelps legacy is secure, no matter what he does in London.
The star of Franklin, is still on the rise.
The high schooler locked up her fourth individual event with a dominating win in the 200 backstroke with a time of 2:06.12 seconds, fastest in the world this year and nearly 1 1/2 seconds ahead of runner-up Elizabeth Beisel, who secured the second spot in London at 2:07.58.
Franklin, 17, already earned spots in the 100 and 200 freestyle and 100 back. She’s also expected to swim on all three relays.
‘‘I can’t believe I have seven events,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s so overwhelming but so exciting. The whole week went really, really well.’’
The 200 back is Franklin’s best event. She’s the defending world champion and heads to London as the overwhelming favorite.
‘‘She’s the best in the world for a reason. She can beat all of us pretty handily,’’ said of North Kingstown, R.I.
Some teenagers have wilted in the Olympic spotlight. Beisel expects Franklin to thrive.
‘‘She handles the media so well,’’ the runner-up said. ‘‘I can see a lot of pressure on her, but she handles it like she’s 25 and she’s been doing this for years. Props to her for being so amazing at that.’’
