Michael Phelps Schedule: Complete Rundown of Remaining Medal Events

LONDON, ENGLAND - JULY 31:  Michael Phelps of the United States prepares to compete in the Men's 200m Butterfly final on Day 4 of the London 2012 Olympic Games at the Aquatics Centre on July 31, 2012 in London, England.  (Photo by Adam Pretty/Getty Images)

Michael Phelps still has a shot for a “B” grade for his 2012 Olympic performance.  

While over 90 percent of the athletes in London would die for a gold medal in the 4x200-meter freestyle, Phelps is still overcoming the disappointing performance he had in the 400m individual medley on Saturday and the shocking last second loss in the 200m butterfly on Tuesday.

But in the process he has won his 19th career medal in the Olympics, passing the medal record set by Larisa Latynina, a Soviet-era gymnast who held the record for the last 48 years. He also has notched his 15th career gold medal, which extends his Olympic record.

So calling his London Olympics a bust would be doing Phelps a disservice.

For now he has one gold and one silver (4x100m free relay) in team events and a silver medal in individual events.

That leaves three chances to win another gold medal and notch a “B” performance overall in the 2012 Games.

Here is his remaining schedule including times for the qualifying heats.

*All times ET

**All finals will be shown from 9-1 p.m. ET primetime on NBC in the U.S.

Wednesday, Aug. 1

6:06 a.m: 200m individual medley preliminary heats

3:43 p.m: 200m individual medley semifinals (must qualify)


Thursday, Aug. 2

6:14 a.m: 100m butterfly preliminary heats 

3:19 p.m: 200m individual medley finals  (must qualify)

3:56 p.m: 100m butterfly semifinals (must qualify)

Friday, Aug. 3

6:49 a.m: 4x100m medley relay preliminary heats 

2:38 p.m: 100m butterfly finals (must qualify)

Saturday, Aug. 4

3:27 p.m: 4x100m finals (must qualify)



The race with the most intrigue will be the 200m individual medley.

It’s the final remaining event where Phelps will be competing against friendly rival and fellow American Ryan Lochte.

With the way these two have performed thus far, it’s a complete tossup.

Which Phelps will show up?

The one who finished fourth in the 400m IM and had a rough last stretch in the 200m butterfly? Or the one who swam a blazing fast 1.44.05 split in the 4x200m freestyle?

It appears as if he’s getting stronger as the Olympics have gone on, so expect at least one more gold medal to be draped around the neck of arguably the greatest Olympian of all-time.

Can he take home all three?
