Michael Phelps won eight gold medals in the 2008 Olympic Games, and he will be looking to add on to his total during the London Games. These are the rankings of his best chances to do so in each of his individual races.

After dropping the 200-meter freestyle from his Olympic schedule, Phelps has seven events on tap for the London Games, four of which are individual races.
