Report: Michael Phelps to participate in two events at Charlotte Grand Prix
Michael Phelps is set to make his second appearance in his comeback at a Grand Prix meet in Charlotte, North Carolina, the Associated Press reports.
Bob Bowman, Phelps's coach, told the AP that Phelps has entered the 100-meter butterfly and 200 freestyle at the May 16 Meet, though he's not sure the swimmer will compete in both.
Phelps ended his retirement two weeks ago when he swam in the Mesa Grand Prix, where he finished second to Ryan Lochte in the 100 fly.
Pumped to be racing again... Happy with the time tonight right where I wanted to be!!
