Lochte beat Phelps in the semi finals on Wednesday and will be looking to repeat his feat by taking gold in the final today.
Meanwhile Michael Phelps will be looking to take his 20th Olympic medal. The top American swimmer of all time will be trying to prove he is still a nose ahead of Lochte as his teammate attempts to establish himself as the top swimmer in the world.
The 200 Meter Individual Medley final is at 8.16 p.m. local time (3.16 p.m. ET).
Phelps will also be featuring in another race just over half an hour later at 8.51 p.m. London time (3.51 p.m. ET) when he will participate in the 100 Meter Butterfly semi finals.
Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte have once again been the stars of Team USA at the Olympic Games 2012 in London. Just days ago Phelps broke the record and became the most decorated Olympian of all time; earning more Olympic medals than any other Olympic athlete ever.
He won his 18th and 19th Olympic medals on Tuesday, but he still has time to pull out further to make sure his record will stand for as long as possible. If he can win the 200 Meter Individual Medley it would be another gold and his 20th Olympic medal. However, Ryan Lochte, who defeated Phelps in the semi finals of the 200 Meter IM yesterday, will be going all out to take the gold. The Phelps vs. Lochte battle will continue today and be one of the highlights of Thursday's Olympic action from London.
Nevertheless it would take a brave man to bet against Phelps not coming in somewhere in the top three, and he is almost certain to claim at least a silver or bronze, which would still earn him his medal and make him the first person ever to take 20 Olympic medals.
Phelps and Lochte will be in action in the 200 Meter Individual Medley final at 8.16 p.m. (3.16 p.m. ET) and then soon after Phelps will take to the pool again at 8.51 p.m. (3.51 p.m. ET) for the 100 Meter Butterfly semi finals.
