As final, which takes place later tonight.

“A final spot is a final spot,” the 27-year-old swimmer told reporters. “The only thing that matters is getting a spot in. You can’t win a gold medal from the morning.”

Phelps won his 400 individual medley heat in 4 minutes, 13.33 seconds, which was less impressive than his US teammate Ryan Lochte who placed third overall.

“My first race is always the worst one,” Lochte told reporters. “I’m glad I got the cobwebs out.”

Ryan added that Phelps still has a chance at gold saying, “Even though he just squeaked in eighth, he’s a racer. We’re going to do everything we can to go 1-2 tonight.”
