Michael Phelps stayed on course to swim eight events at the London Olympics with a dominating win in the 200-metre butterfly at the U.S. swimming trials on Thursday.

The real race was for second place and a spot on the Olympic team. Tyler Clary, who lost out to Phelps in the 400 individual medley, rallied from behind for a time of 1-55.12, edging Bouiller’s time of 1-55.79.

Clary pumped his right fist and pounded the water when he saw the scoreboard.
