Michael Phelps is set to run the 200-Meter Butterfly final on Day 4, Tuesday of the 2012 Olympics events. The star swimmer has been less than impressive coming into the London games, but experts suggest this Olympic match is one Phelps just can't lose.
"This event is Phelps' bread and butter. He owns this race, and there's no way he doesn't win," Jesse Reed, a featured columnist for Bleacher Report says about the record-breaking US swimmer.

Michael Phelps won the 200-Meter Butterfly relay twice before and if he wins a third time, he will set yet another record. He would become the first male to win in the same event in three Olympics.
Phelps 200-Meter Butterfly relay is scheduled for 2:49PM EST. All events will be streamed live at NBCOlympics.com.
Here is a list of the dates for all Michael Phelps' remaining races in the 2012 Olympics.
200-Meter Butterfly on July 31
200-Meter Freestyle Relay on July 31
200-Meter Individual Medley on August 2
100-Meter Butterfly on August 3
100-Meter Medley Relay on August 4
Ryan Lochte, another US swimmer in the Olympic games, began on Day 1 with a gold win, but quickly began to disappoint. The 27 year-old swimmer failed to earn a medal in the 4x100-Meter Freestyle Relay and in the 200-Meter Freestyle on Monday.
"I did my best," Lochte said. "I guess sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. I gave it 110 percent. There's probably some things I messed up on, but you live and learn."
The Tuesday Olympics schedule has Lochte down for the 4x200 Meter Relay; a chance for redemption.
