Michael Phelps may have passed the torch to fellow American Ryan Lochte, but there's still time to grab it right back.

Phelps finished fourth as Lochte took home gold medal in the the 400-meter individual medley on Saturday. Many are suggesting that the torch has officially been passed by Phelps, but he has a handful of competitions left to regain his glory.

Here are Phelps' competitions for the rest of the Olympics:

Phelps will have a great opportunity to regain his torch, so to speak, with competitions that favor his style. The 400-meter individual medley wasn't an event he was totally prepared for, whereas Lochte has been training for four years for that event, as well as others.

July 30 and 31 will be the days to watch Phelps to see whether or not his Olympic flash is gone. Phelps gets another chance to win an individual medal when he participates in the 200-meter butterfly.

If he fails to medal in that competition, then I will truly believe that the torch is passed to Lochte. 



Phelps will win three gold medals at the 2012 Summer Olympics. Two of his three gold medals will be in relays.
