Michael Phelps is back on top of the world in the 100-meter fly. Phelps blasted a 50.45 in tonight’s final at USA Nationals in San Antonio. The time puts him first in the world, ahead of butterfly heavyweights Chad le Clos and Laszlo Cseh. Phelps’s swim was an impeccable response to Le Clos and Cseh’s “trash talk” from the FINA World Championships in Kazan. Le Clos (50.56) and Cseh (50.87) took first and second at Worlds.
