Lochte wins 400 IM in blowout; Phelps finishes 4th
Stunner: Ryan Lochte races to blowout win in 400 IM, while Phelps doesn't even get a medal
By The Associated Press

LONDON (AP) Ryan Lochte turned his much-anticipated duel with Michael Phelps into a blowout, pulling away to win the Olympic 400-meter individual medley by more than 3 seconds Saturday night. Even more stunning: Phelps didn't even win a medal.

After barely qualifying for the evening final in a performance that hinted at trouble ahead, Phelps struggled to a fourth-place finish and was denied his 17th career medal. When it was done, he could barely pull himself out of the pool.

Brazil's Thiago Pereira took the silver, and Japan's Kosuke Hagino claimed the bronze beating Phelps by a barely comfortable 34-hundredths of a second for a spot on the podium.
